Opera mini Dimension beta anounced too early ?

As soon as Opera anounced Opera Mini Dimension I remembered a post I read back in November about Opera Mini 3D Photo Blog. Dan Alexandru might have been right.
I search the internet back and forth but there's no clue about what dimension it's meant to be.. no leak at all. Come on people, throw us a bone!

The annoucement of the Beta version was made too early as a marketing campaign. Hopefully, the waiting will pay off. I'm a litle scared that Opera Mini Dimension might be bloated with lots of useless features. Anyway, I read on a forum that Opera Q1 results will be presented on May 30th at 8 CET (http://www.opera.com/company/investors/event/). If I were Opera Mini Project Manager I would launch the beta 24 hours before so check out on May 29th.

Anyway, let's see if Opera Mini Dimension can beat this.

Opera mini hack with Google search

Posted by mobile phone:

Since I quit freelancing and got job my free time decreased exponentially. I am no time management expert but nature teached me. Lately I don't even power on my computer when I get back from work but instead I started to use me E61 to it's full potential - daily tasks, unix/linux administration.. I'm even writing this post while getting back from work (in the tube).

As I spend a litle more than an hour on my way to and back from work I found Opera mini to be a life saver. Actually, I'm not using the official Opera mini but a hack of 2.0 version which still has Google search.
When Opera switched to Yahoo! search I tried to get used to it for a week and then didn't use Mini for web searching anymore.
This hack I'm using has a lot of features injected in it like copy/paste support, file manager, offline webpage save/load - this is especially usefull to me while in the tube, screen rotation, direct download, advanced alternative cache which can be saved on disk rather than phone memory, multi-page browsing (tan like), find in page and many other killer features. Also, it highly tweakable with an impressive number of parameters that you can play with. On top of this a litle hack in the .jar will let you have both Opera Mini 3 and the hack installed (and even running) in the same time.

In short this is a must have for any moblogger (did I told you I started a moblog? I'm really enjoying it?)

I attached some screenshots to tease you even more.

Go get it at http://opera-mini.ru/index.php ! Use Babelfish or Google Translate to figure out your way thru the site. There is somewhere an english version. If you experience any problems get back here and ask for help.

For Opera Mini mod 1.25 check-out this links (try the .jad on your phone):

For Opera Mini 2.00 mod you'll have to wait a litle to get it out of my phone and upload it somewhere - as usual, I'm posting from mobile and it's a litle difficult to upload it right now.

I just can't wait for the english translation of the latest mod.
