The Clock is Running: Opera Mini Submitted to Apple
The benchmark results (they start at around 0:51) are particularly compelling; Opera Mini leaves Mobile Safari sucking wind. Opera has submitted Mini to Apple for approval for a second time (the first was back in 2008) and the company claims to have met every last requirement of the App store prior to submission. There's a count-up timer running on the site and a free iPhone to the person who guesses correctly how long it'll take Apple to approve or presumably reject the Opera browser.
In all likelihood, Apple will reject Opera Mini on the grounds that it duplicates functionality. After watching the comparison video, we'd disagree; Opera Mini provides functionality that Mobile Safari doesn't even touch. Not that we'd recommend anyone jailbreak their iPhone to use it—but if you did, we'd understand.
