I would like to set Opera Mobile as the default web browser on my Nokia Symbian phone, so that when I open a link from another app or email, that it opens in the excellent Opera Mobile instead of the Nokia browser.
How might I set Opera as the default?

Just to follow up:
I've taken a look around, and while there doesnt seem to be a definitive answer on the Nokia site or on pages found by Google, the general consensus is that the Nokia E51 cannot change the default browser.
From the Nokia site:
"In general, to check if a 3rd party web browser can be set as the default browser, install the browser and select (in the devices which support this, e.g. Nokia N97 and N97 mini) Menu > Settings > Phone > Application sett. > Default apps.> Browsing internet. If the newly installed browser can be found in the list, it has been successfully registered and can be selected as the default browser."
The E51 does not have this setting. So it appears that the default browser cannot be changed on the E51.
