AC @ MWC: Hands-on video with the Opera Mobile browser for Android

Here's a quick look at Opera Mobile on Android. And it looks, well, like you'd expect Opera Mobile to on Android. It's nice and fast, thanks to the major compression going on, and it'll make a nice addition to Android's browser arsenal. Problem is, you can't get it. We've mentioned before that Opera Mobile's only available to manufacturers and carriers: Basically it has to be cooked into the ROM. And so it remains, which is too bad.

The good news is there's still Opera Mini, which can be found in the Android Market. But we'd love for the big brother to make it onto our phones some day.
