It's real. Go ahead, touch it.

After weeks of waiting, Apple has finally approved Opera’s Mini browser on the iPhone and iPod Touch.

So sayeth the press release:

Opera Mini will be available as a free download within 24 hours, depending on market

Opera Mini, with more than 50 million users worldwide, enables fast mobile Web browsing by compressing data by up to 90 percent before sending content to the device, resulting in significantly improved page loading. Users of the app will notice an uptake in speed, especially on slower networks such as the 2G Edge network. Surfing the web with the Opera Mini App on iPhone and iPod touch will also help users save money because of its data compression capabilities. This will hold especially true while the user is incurring roaming charges.

Opera doesn’t really need to sell it that hard. If you want Opera on your Apple touchscreen, you already know all about it and you’ve been waiting for this day.

Keep checking the App Store tonight and tomorrow to get yours.
