With the official version of Opera Mini 3 out now I removed the beta version and installed 3.0 release over 2. And then a half hour later as I was waiting for breakfast realized that Bloglines mobile isn’t working in the new 3.0 version. If that’s one of your common stops you might want to hold off on the update for a bit.
Mini 3 does have it’s own feed reader, which I fooled around with for a bit. I’m not really sure I like it though. There were a few feeds already in the reader when I started it up and they were kinda cumbersome to delete, I got some errors when trying to load the feed for my blog (which were solved by just hitting reload, server hiccup maybe?), and the functions I use a lot like “keep unread” and “send this link” stuff isn’t there. I’ll probably stick with Bloglines Mobile for now.
That said however, the rendering is great. The small font seems smaller than before, and there’s a TON of readable text on the screen on my E61. The content folding seems to work very well also, pretty impressive.
