Unhappy users all over the web, all 3 of them.
Good news, after a lackluster success with the overhyped Opera Unite service, it looks like Opera Software has finally come to fruition and will be discontinuing it along with the Widgets as well as Voice, saving both money and valuable resources.
According to MoboTap, a company behind Dolphin HD, they had no idea that their web browser was available in the BlackBerry’s App World. In addition to that, they never authorized such submission and are currently working to fix the mess, which was caused by Handster.
Back in January of 2010, Opera Software has acquired“AdMarvel”, a mobile advertising startup valued at around $8 million.
Slightly more than a year after announcing extensions, Opera’s add-ons directory has just surpassed the 1000 mark and is slowly edging towards the next milestone.
In addition to such announcement, Aleksander Aas, community manager at Opera Software, has unveiled that the new Opera’s API’s and features (as you might expect) are in development as well.

Will use its own creation instead.
Nokia, the largest handset manufacturer in the world, is known to use the Opera Mini web browser in some of its products. However, things are about to change as with the launch of four new Series 40 devices, Nokia has decided to use its own web browser instead.
A Russian web site that loads for mobile users only and looks similar to the Opera.com home page now offers a piece of malware, disguised as OperaMini.jar
Upon visit, a user is notified about the new update that should be downloaded, which, when installed, will start sending text messages to premium numbers.
Opera Software has announced that it will be opening a new data center for Americans to better serve almost 130 million Opera Mini users. Why? Apparently serious hardware is needed to accommodate the close to 80 billion web pages, or 11.4 petabytes, served through Opera Mini each month. Users of Opera Turbo will surely benefit as well.
What Opera Software evidently intends to do with this new data center is provide American users with even faster browsing. In addition to that, the new data center, located at the Fortress Colocation Centers, follows Opera Software’s commitment to the environment, for it uses 80% renewable energy. Sounds great for American users!
