    Hi, I wonder whether the statistics of “Opera Mini Usage” is reflective of “Mobile Internet”. It has around 25% market share in the mob browser space and is more popular in the developing countries. Find it difficult to fathom that Indian Mobile Internet market is bigger than most of the other countries.

    Well Vishi we cetainly have a huge population! even a fraction of then using mobile internet (and that throught Opera) would be equal to populations of other countries. BTW I own an nokia E63, and i dont think I have the opera browser..any idea what browser it carries?
