Nice. I wonder if by "trial" they mean it's simply a beta version, or if its features will be limited?

...Who the heck are those ninja and spider guys? Are they mascots of Opera?

Anyway, nice information, LD. I guess by "trial", they mean it will have limited features, like no support for programs like Google maps. By spring '07, they'll release a finalized version, but it'll cost you.

Hmmm... it never occurred to me that the trial might have limitations. But yes, in June you must pay for it. Yurgh.

From nintendo-europe.com:

The final version of the Opera browser will be available at the end of March 2007, and will be free for all Wii owners to download through the end of June. After June 2007, the browser will be available for download in the Wii Shop Channel for 500 Wii Points.

So, it looks like we'll still get free Opera (assuming this doesn't apply strictly to Europe), and even if we don't, 500 Wii Points would be worth it.

I'm surprised they didn't just give it 2000 Wii Points or something. I mean, it sounds like a really great deal.

$20, for a free web browser? You must be joking.
That was a joke.

Great. I was wondering when the web browser would finally come out.

Hopefully the Beta isn't too limited.
As a game that requires six friends, an HDTV, and skill, I can see why the majority of TMK is going to hate on it hard.

One thing I'm curious about is whether or not one IP address is shared among all the Internet Channel users. Also, I'm not sure what this "limited" funcionality is.

Well, a forum admin could tell you right now, as all IPs are logged on each post (they might have to change their forum skin for a minute, though, depending on the way they have it set up.  Usually, a normal poster would simply see "Logged", so I'm guessing they can't view the IP on the default skin)

Well why would the Wii on your network at your house using your Internet connection not use its own IP?
That was a joke.

I was thinking all communication would go from your network, through Nintendo's servers, before reaching its destination.

What do Nintendo's servers have to do with this, and why would that affect your IP anyway? It's not like it's going through WFC at any rate. The Wii is being used as a web browser, it's not connecting to some Nintendo service that has a web browser on it.
That was a joke.
