Opera Mini for iPhone and iPod touch approved

Opera Mini for the iPhone and iPod touch has been approved by Apple, and will be available on the AppStore within 24 hours, depending on the market.

When Opera submitted their browser to Apple for approval on March 23, many users where doubtful that they would ever see another browser allowed on the AppStore.  However, the light seems to shine on Opera today, as Opera has officially announced Opera Mini has been approved.

The lightweight browser will allow for better multi-tasking over Safari, including better data and tab handling.  However, the browser won’t support pinch to zoom functionality just yet, according to the New York Times, but will be supported later in the year.
