There are plenty of mobile surfing options out there but very few are quite as sexy as the prospect of making your way around the internet on a glossy white gaming machine. Although the Opera web browser has been available for the Nintendo DS in Europe and Japan for some time now, Americans have been snubbed. Not anymore, because Opera is coming on June 4.
I’m surprised that it has taken them this long, considering that they already went through the trouble of translating to produce the European version. Yes, you still have to suffer in the dungeon of 802.11b blazing slow connections, but hey, it’s mobile web and it’s essentially free. You just have to plop down the price for the software (and RAM boost pack), which should be in the $30 range. Much cheaper than importing.
