Opera Mobile 12 also launched at MWC, and brings "more goodies" to owners of Android and Symbian, the following is included in Opera Mobile 12:

  • WebGL on Android phones, for all things 3D and web. With WebGL on mobile, it'll be even easier to make games cross platform and to distribute them. "Opera have contributed significantly to the development of the WebGL specification and now Opera Mobile is playing a leading role in the roll-out of GPU-accelerated WebGL on Android," said Neil Trevett, Khronos president and vice president of mobile content at NVIDIA.
  • Ragnark, Opera's HTML5 parser support, meaning better web apps and increased compatibility with websites. More HTML5 means more advanced web functionality.
  • Support for camera use in the browser.
  • More possibilities for customizing the Speed Dial of Opera Mobile, including entering as many Speed Dial entries as you like
