What’s the most downloaded mobile app EVAR? Wrong. It’s Opera Mini, and it’s not available for the iPhone.

Opera Mini’s success on GetJar shows that a globally available, open, cross-platform mobile application store can indeed make some headway in the face of the iPhone AppStore. GetJar boasts over 50,000 mobile applications for all major handsets and platforms – which is arguably better than the AppStore’s 65,000 iPhone apps that only work on the iPhone and are sometimes country-specific.

I’ve previously sung the praises of Opera Mini — it really is the best mobile browsing experience out there, better than Safari on iPhone, even.

There, I said it. 😛
