    Here is part of the email I received:

    It's ready. Opera Mini 4 Beta, "Dimension" is available for you to try. Thanks for waiting patiently as we work hard to give you something truly special. We're proud to say Dimension sets a new standard for Web browsing on mobile phones. There are some noticeable improvements that we'll describe in detail below.

    But first, here's what you really want: download Dimension directly from your WAP browser to your phone from here

    Note that Opera Mini 4 Beta will NOT overwrite existing Opera Mini installations you may have.

    What you will you find in Dimension:

    - PC-style browsing direct to your mobile phone.
    Opera Mini has brought you the Web for your phone since 2006, but now with Dimension we give you a full overview of the page in one easy view - just like you expect from your PC Web browser.

    - Start and stay at the right place
    When you load a page, Dimension will automatically suggest a place to begin reading. When it's time to dive into the page, Dimension zooms in and cleanly focuses on the content you want.

    - Dynamic scrolling
    Opera Mini dynamically changes the size of text and images to make it convenient to read without a lot of unnecessary scrolling.

    - Fast and cheap browsing
    As always, Opera Mini delivers the pages you want, quickly. In doing so, Opera Mini makes your data bill cheaper, too.

    - Surf the Web in style
    The Web. Period. You can get any site, any where, at any time. It's your Web, to go.

    We want to hear what you think. Please share your thoughts on Dimension in the forums by clicking here

    Or, take a few moments to complete our brief survey by clicking here

    Thanks so much for participating in the Dimension Beta program. Let us know what you think, and we promise to continue setting the standards for you getting the Web on your mobile phone.

    I installed it on my 755p and after a few minutes of browsing around it locked up solid. Had to remove battery to reset.

    So far it sucks.

    Same here, locks up Midlet Manager on my 750. Looks nicer on the 750 than it does the 700p for some reason.

    Anyway, it's not FAST. I like OM3 because it makes the ENTIRE web usable. v4 is not a browser I'd use on a daily basis at this point. Still, it's an early beta, and I'm sure they'll fix the bugs and pick up the speed soon.

    It locked up 3 times for me while installing. It has not locked up while browsing...however, it's not fast as "skfny" stated.

    I can't seem to run either version 3 or 4 Beta on my updated 700p without instant resetting.

    Any solution for this?

    Mine locks in test 1 when launched for the first time. Tried 4 different times and always locks there. Too bad, I was looking forward to the zooming in and out feature.

    So far I havent had any problems on my 680. I'm going to keep pushing it to see if it will break, but I like it so far.

    It locks up my 650 every time.

    I seem to get stuck at the Network Setup screen. I don't know how long "several minutes" is meant to be, but 10 minutes seems a bit too long...

    I'm using a 680 with AT&T.

    Yep, I had to reboot 3 times during the network setup process. But after that it seems to be working ok. Slow, but ok. Hopefully they will come out with the next version.

    I can't get past the network setup process at all after multiple resets. I guess I have to wait for a newer version to be posted and try again later.

    Biggest question I have to start is whether there is a newer J2ME version than the one posted in 2005 for the 650...? I installed that and OM4 on my 680 and it got through network setup without any issues (first time). I browsed a few simple pages, but I have to say that I really like the page view and zoom action, as well as dragging to scroll in the zoomed view. Very sweet.

    Unfortunately, I was left a little nonplussed when it completely froze up my device when opening an only slightly more complex page. I removed it immediately -- I use my Treo for too much to have any app freeze like that. I may give it another try, but I am also curious about folks' J2ME experiences on PalmOS in general. Do you feel that a J2ME appication is integrated well enough, say, to replace Blazer as the default browser and expect thinks like URL links to launch correctly?

    a little slower then I would have liked for an updated version but I have not had any lock ups on my 755p (maybe because its the blue one... )

    Works good for me. Isn't as fast as version 3, but has some interesting features. No lockups or resets, but I only messed around with it for a few minutes.

    I don't know if I like it. It is slower and it gets stuck sometimes. Have you tried going to Treocentral forums from Opera 4? I can't.

    After having reset a few times I got it to work and it has some very impressive features!!

    I can actually view entire large web pages for the first time and it includes a mouse pointer. I cant wait till they work out the bugs,

    I bet this version will rival the iPhone browser...
