Opera Software, the Norwegian software developer behind the popular Opera web browser, announced earlier this week that two new Opera versions for the Google-developed Android operating system have been released to the public. The two new versions in question are Opera Mini 6.5 for Android and Opera Mobile 11.5 for Android.

The interesting thing about these two new versions of Opera Mini and Opera Mobile is that they feature data usage. Or as Opera Software put it, the two browsers display how much data you have spent and saved using the two products.

As you may already know, Opera Mini and Opera Mobile use cloud-assisted browsing to reduce the size of webpages by up to 90%. On top of that, the two new versions of the browsers can keep track of how much data you spend and save in total or over a specific amount of time (like when you are on a trip abroad). All the data usage info is displayed in a dedicated page that you can access from the Help menu.

Staying on top of data usage translates into saved money. This is a handy feature for people with capped data plans and for travelers who go on a trip and use data roaming. “A lot of people don’t realize how much money they can save on data traffic, people naturally want an easy way to measure how much data they use,” said Lars Boilesen, CEO, Opera Software. “Now, Opera Mini and Opera Mobile will show exactly how much data you save by using our cloud-assisted technology. Never before has it been this easy — or this sexy — to reduce your mobile data usage.”

If you would like to get Opera Mini or Opera Mobile, you can get them from the Android Market or by browsing to m.opera.com. Or just scan the QR code below.
