Opera Mobile for Android (not to be confused with its Mini brethren) has certainly been long in the making, but according to a recent tweet by @opvard, one of Opera's employees, it's finally around the corner. The tweet didn't reveal much, but it did inform us that the mobile browser is on track for a November 9th release, adding a definitive date to the awesome Next page that we saw yesterday. It may not be as exciting as Samsung's upcoming announcement on Monday, but still, it's about time Andy sees a real version of the wonder that is Opera.
