Opera Beta User Agent String (Android)

I just downloaded the latest beta of Opera onto my Gingerbread phone and it's now running on Webkit. Of course, the first thing I did was look up it's user agent string. :-) Here it is:

Opera/9.80 (Android; Opera Mini/14.0.1025/28.4150; U; en) Presto/2.8.119 Version/11.10

My initial impression of the browser?? Not bad!! It scrolls a lot smoother than the default android browser and the UI feels very intuitive. It has an "Off-Road mode" that's supposedly saved me 98% data thus far. Not sure how it's measuring it, but it sounds good. I don't see any kind of developer options yet, but they're still in beta, so I'll cut them some slack.
