Re: SAMSUNG launches World's First 8MP Camera Phone with AMOLED screen Ultra TOUCH' in the Indian market

Though I don't know if my friend was able to install the Opera browser, since Samsung's OS can run JAVA apps, you can probably download the Opera Mini straight from Opera's website using your mobile phone's browser. Just head on over to mini.opera.com and follow the instructions. It would probably say that if your phone is not listed, it would give you the JAR/JAD files.

Alternatively, you can search the net and download the JAR/JAD files and install Opera Mini yourself.
