Opera for iPhone: one million downloads on first day
iPhone users have rushed to replace their phone's Safari browser with Opera, downloading it more than one million times on the first day of release, the Norwegian firm Opera Software said.
On April 13 Apple accepted distribution of the browser for the iPhone after a long review, opening a new and potentially lucrative market it had closely guarded.
"Apple said 'Yes' and iPhone users around the world said 'Yes, please'," Opera said in a statement.
The browser promises up to six times faster download speeds than Apple's own browser. It also promises to cut data traffic by up to 90 percent.Massive data traffic from iPhone mobile phones has caused problems for many operators' networks worldwide
