How do you make money out of it?
They've said they aren't going to inject adverts in...

money, money, money
They are making money just like the desktop version: Every time you use the search field, Google pays Opera.
Also, they can move users from the public Opera Mini versions, and onto versions customized for operators, and then the operator will pay per active user.
From the article linked to (in this article):
"Today Opera's income comes from three streams: licensing and royalties in one stream, income from active users and transactions in another stream, and "internet economy" income such as driving referrals to search engines as a third. The latter, by the way, is what keeps Mozilla afloat. So mobile networks pay to use Opera's server technology because it saves them bandwidth, and improves the end-user experience."
Since Opera Mobile is the browser that made Windows Mobile a viable smartphone platform, I hope we can see the same bump from 10 to 10.1, and a similar performance improvement, before too long! It seems to be on 10.0 still at the moment.
Isn't WM dead?
I have played with it for a few minutes...
... and it certainly feels a lot snappier than 10.0 (not that 10.0 was a slouch).
