Worldwide, six of most popular phones for browsing using Opera’s Mini are from Nokia, two are from Sony Ericsson, one is from RIM and one is from Samsung. Though in the U.S., nine of the top 10 phones using Opera Mini are BlackBerrys. The report can be viewed on Opera’s site.

Other report highlights include: people using Opera Mini viewed more than 3.2 billion pages in June, up 9.4% from May; and during June, Opera Mini users generated more than 46.7 million MB of data, compressed from the 311 million MBs requested.

Opera says its report provides a snapshot to mobile browsing trends in the U.S., Russia, China, Indonesia, India, UK, Germany, Poland, South Africa and Ukraine.

“People want the Web on their phone regardless of the type of phone they have,” said Jon von Tetzchner, CEO, Opera. “Our list of top phones shows both smartphones and feature phones, which is a testament to the versatility Opera Mini provides. Additionally, it proves that given the right experience, many more people will use the Web on their phone. Accessing the Web on your phone is not a luxury limited to who has the most expensive phone model.”
