Opera Browser Rejected From App Store

With the controversy around Apple’s removal of several apps like Podcaster, there’s been some uncertainty about exactly what would be able to get into the App Store. Well, now we can check web browsers off the list. The NY Times wrote about Opera Software earlier today, in which they revealed that the Opera browser has already been submitted and rejected from the App Store.

“Mr. von Tetzchner said that Opera’s engineers have developed a version of Opera Mini that can run on an Apple iPhone, but Apple won’t let the company release it because it competes with Apple’s own Safari browser.”
