“In our lineup, all players are equally important–we leave no device behind. Our small and clever pieces of software will give you a 5-star experience, no matter what hardware you prefer”, said Lars Boilesen, the CEO of Opera Software.
Next week should be pretty exciting.
Update: It looks like it might be coming to Windows 7 tablets instead.

After quite a few snapshot builds, here comes the first beta of Opera 11.10 web browser.
