Opera has announced that the Opera Mobile web browser will be available for Google Android on November 9th. We already knew the company was working on an Android version of the app, but now we have the release date. Opera Mobile is already available for Windows Mobile and Symbian S60 devices.

Opera Mobile differs from the Opera Mini web browser which is already available for Android, since Opera Mini relies on remote server compressions to render pages quickly. Opera Mobile is a native browser that runs on your mobile device.

The browser will support pinch to zoom using hardware acceleration, geolocation, and other features that take advantage of your phone’s hardware. It will also have some of Opera’s hallmarks, including a Speed Dial page with thumbnail icons for your most important bookmarks, and Opera Link capabilities for synchronizing your data with the cloud (and Opera running on your desktop or other mobile devices).
