The thought of writing another story about cell phones induces the need to vomit but who am I to disappoint Matt Selman? Hey, Matt, I’m going to push down your limerick genius with posts about cell phones and cameras, k?

Opera will unveil Mini 5 beta for the iPhone next week in Barcelona at MWC and promises the experience will be “fast, easy to use, and packed with favorite Opera features.” Preposterous, right? I know Opera is “safe” to use but I still don’t feel comfortable divulging private information over a funneled service.

There are a few things that have me scratching my head, though. Will Apple approve the app? Opera claims their compression technology will result in faster page loading, which will in turn reduce data fees. Am I naïve in thinking that everyone has opted for unlimited data? I suppose this would come in handy when roaming, though.
