Opera has released a version of Opera Mobile 10.1 for Symbian S60 phones. The mobile web browser has a new Javascript engine, improved support for HTML5, support for geolocation, and Opera’s “Speed Dial” section which lets you create a start page with thumbnail icons for your most frequently visited bookmarked web pages.

According to the release notes, even though Opera 10.1 has gone final for Symbian, there’s still room for improvement. The app doesn’t support pinch-to-zoom, and there’s no support for HTML5 audio or video files. The new JavaScript engine also uses more memory than the older version, which could cause problems on some phones.

You can download Opera Mobile 10.1 for Symbian from the Opera Mobile page, or visit m.opera.com from your phone.

Opera Mobile 10.1 for Symbian has been in beta since this summer. A version of the app is also available for Google Android.
