Opera has now launched its first beta of its Opera Mini web browser for Windows Phone, a few days after it started taking email signups to try out the beta release.

Even though Opera seemed to suggest that only people who signed up for the beta test would have access to this early release, this first version is available for anyone to download. Keep in mind that this is a beta release, so there are bound to be some bugs and issues.

Here's a quick list of the Opera Mini's features:

  • Speed Dial - Set all your favorite websites on the home screen of the browser. Add as many entries as you like!
  • Smart Page - Smart Page gives you instant updates from all your social sites on one screen.
  • Tabs – Have more webpages open at the same time, allowing you to switch quickly between them while browsing.
  • Save pages - Save pages you like for later reading, or for times you're not connected to the internet.

What do you think of this early public version of Opera Mini for Windows Phone? Thanks to Tommy and others for the tips!
