Opera Mini - For Windows Mobile

I was trying to install a Java based poker game the other night, when I started learning how difficult and complicated it is to run a simple Java application on a Windows Mobile device.
Not that I'm lazy or something but the procedure required installing and configuring a MIDlet application (Risidoro's MIDlet can be found in here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=286604), then I learned that those MIDlets will only run on Phone edition devices…
OK, and then, I had to move the Jar file to my device, install it using the MIDlet and run it only from there…
This is supposed to be a really good Texas Hold'em poker but guess what? It took it ages to open and it doesn't seem to work like it should...

But, Since I spent some time investigating the subject, I accidentally found the Opera Mini Java based browser which is really good! And for FREE!



So, if you are interested in a (long) adventure - try it out! http://www.operamini.com/download/
The browser seems to work perfectly and has some nice browsing features. Feels like using a Blackberry device, but still nice.



BTW: The complete MIDlet tutorial can be found in here: http://www.pocketpcmag.com/cms/index.php?q=blogs/3/644
