Opera Mini 4.2 Launched In 12 Indic Languages

Opera Software has released the final version of its mobile browser Opera Mini 4.2, which is available in 12 Indian languages, apart from 78 other languages. The Indic languages include Assamese, Bengali, Gujarati, Kannada, Marathi, Malayalam, Oriya, Punjabi,  Tamil, Telugu, Urdu, Kashmiri.

According to Opera, in their October 2008 report, more and more Indians now use their phones to access India Rail’s train schedules. India remains consistently amongst the top three countries using Opera Mini. Opera also has a mobile browser Opera Mobile, which it has provided to Tata Indicom in India, for browsing in Hindi.

I tried out Opera Mini 4.2 in Hindi, on my Nokia N95, and noticed that the text doesn’t quite render correctly – there’s overlap between characters in every word. For example, in case of हिन्दी there is an overlap between द and the character after it. This makes it difficult to read text in Hindi.
