Turbo-charge your Android phone

Oy you! Got an Android phone? I bet you like surfing the web on it, don't you? What with the full support for Flash video and all. Bit slow, at times, though, isn't it?

Well, here's some good news: the latest version of Opera Mobile, version 10.1, is out for Android. It's a beta, but that never stops anyone these days, right?

For those who don't know, Opera is an alternative browser made by some Norwegians. It's available for Windows, Mac and Linux, but it's on mobiles where its impressive speed has really become invaluable. This latest version couples that speed with nifty features like pinch-to-zoom, bookmark syncing with your desktop, and a great system for tab management, as you can see in this video:

It's free, natch, so hit up the Android Market and give it a whirl.
