Wii Browser Delayed until April

It was recently reported that Opera's Nintendo Wii Web Browser will be availible sometime during April, though the exact date has not yet been announced. Previously, it was stated that the web browser would be available during the end of March, but seeing as March is now ending, it must have been, though it is not known on why. The web browser will be free of charge through June. After June, it will be priced at 500 wii points ($5). Currently, only the following changes were confirmed:

- Improved zooming and scrolling
- An improved zoomed font
- Shortened startup times
- Quicker access to 'favorites'
- An ability to erase the toolbar
- Buttons that instantly type common preset letters, such as 'www' or '.com'

All other changes are simply rumors, though it can be assumed the some more scripts would be allowed, along with some more Flash, video, and/or possibly Java.
