Opera Software has released the first third-party browser for the Google Android operating system.

Opera's Opera Mini 4.2 browser for mobile phones can be loaded onto the G1 Android device sold by T-Mobile. Various other phones running other operating systems can also use Opera Mini.

A technical preview of Opera Mini was previously released for an earlier version of Android in April 2008, before the first Android-powered device was launched.

Users of the G1 can download a beta version of Opera Mini 4.2 and "experience a faster and less costly way to browse the full internet", said Opera.

With Opera Mini, data is compressed before it is sent to the phone. This helps to keep end-user costs low, since the data delivered is kept to a minimum.
