India Becomes The Largest Market For Opera Mini In Terms Of User-base; Top Domains, Handsets

 Opera Software, the browser company, which brings out its State of the Mobile Web (SMW) report tracking mobile browsing trends on the basis of Opera Mini (its mobile browser) usage, has reported that India is now the largest Opera Mini country, in terms of unique users per month. However, it did not reveal number of Opera Mini users in India. India overtook Indonesia last year in June to become the second highest ranking country to use Opera Mini.

Opera Mini offers a desktop-like web experience on mobile devices. Opera Mini compresses the webpage by 90% which in turn saves data costs on handheld devices. Apart from that, it also offers features such as Speed Dial, tabbed browsing, password manager and social media integration.

Top domains accessed from Opera Mini in India: 

Although Opera didn’t include this in the SMW report, Opera sent us a list of top domains accessed from Opera Mini in India:

Top handsets in India:
  • Nokia X2
  • Nokia 2690
  • Nokia 2700c
  • Nokia 5130 Xpressmusic
  • Nokia c1
  • Nokia c2
  • Nokia 5233
  • Benq Maui E800
  • Nokia 2730c
  • Samsung GT C3312
It’s interesting to note that Nokia still tops the Indian market when it comes to feature phones. Although the analysis comes from users with Opera Mini installed, the install base is large enough to conclude the analysis.

Opera Mini & Opera Mobile users: Presently, Opera Mini claims to have 172 million subscribers. In April 2012, about 166 million people used Opera Mini while more than 189 million people used the Opera Mini and Opera Mobile. It served 108 billion pages and compressed more than 19 petabytes of data for Opera Mini users. The company did not reveal separate statics for India. Opera has also included Opera Mini unique user numbers from operator white-label agreements.
