One thought on “What is the difference between Opera Mini and Opera Mobile?

  1. I downloaded Opera 4.3 on my new Pantech Pursuit Mobile, but now want to delete it. Opera removed me from a blog because they said I was from the People’s Republic of China. When I am an American and in an American Territory, I decided if they want to be like this, I will no longer use their product.

    Now, I cannot delete Opera from my mobile. Every time I try, it says “failed”. HELP PLEASE.
