>> Jessica Dolcourt: If you've got a Symbian Series 60 phone slipped into your pocket, you should consider replacing your browser with Opera Mobile 10 beta. I'm Jessica Dolcourt from cnetdownload.com. Let's take a look. Opera Mobile 10 beta is a full feature standalone browser that uses the same version of the browser engine as the Opera 10 desktop browser. However, the biggest changes in this mobile build come to the interface. Opera Mobile 10 beta now looks a lot like Opera Mini 5 beta for Java phones. What we see on this Nokia N97 is a minimalist navigation bar and an expandable search field. There are new icons in the options menu for getting to bookmark settings and to the tech search feature known as find in page. Opera mobile has long supported tabbed browsing, but now tabs get a visual thumbnail treatment that helps you quickly preview open tabs and flip among the loaded pages. Open up a new tab, and you'll see Opera's now signature speed dial display. Speed dial is now on the Opera Mini browser in addition to the Opera desktop browser. You can assign speed dial choices and also edit them. Opera Mobile has also had a password manager in previous versions. The new version 10 beta, however, makes it easy to delete the password cache in just a click. It continues to keep features like the optional Opera Turbo compression engine which can speed up performance when you've got a weak data or WiFi connection. The browser can also download files and images and select text. However, the beta is currently missing Opera Link which is the tool to sync bookmarks and speed dial across your various Opera browsers. The beta also does not support phones in Asian languages at the time that this video was made, but Opera does intend to fix this for the next release. There are some other known issues and bugs you may encounter like having the virtual keyboard pop up even in the presence of a physical keyboard. The mobile browser is free to download on Nokia and an Eseries phones and on Samsung and Sony Erickson smartphones running Symbian Series 60 editions 3 and 5. Try Opera Mobile 10 beta by pointing the mobile browser to m.opera.com/mobile. I'm Jessica Dolcourt, thanks for watching. ^M00:02:10 [ Music ] ^M00:02:14
