Opera Mini 5 beta for Android: First Look video

We take you on a hands-on tour of Opera's slick-looking browser alternative for Android smartphones.

Earlier this week, Opera Software released Opera Mini 5 beta for Android , a vast improvement to the version 4.2 browser that had previously been available for Android. Opera Mini 5 beta isn't new to the scene--it's been out for some months on Java phones, BlackBerry, and interestingly, it just hopped on board Windows phones.

In this First Look video, we take you on a hands-on tour of Opera's slick-looking browser alternative for Android smartphones, which is available for free in the Android Market or by downloading it from www.opera.com/mini/next/.
