Due to the nature of the release of mobile phones, we now have so many different models. I can’t count exactly how many there are as another model is released by the end of this sentence!
Many have tried to create a device database that allows developers to use, easing our lives. Below are a few:
- WURFL - The ancestor to all, and still the best, and it is open sourced, still keeping alive by Luca Passani.
- Volantis - Open sourced recently
- Device Atlas
Somehow it seems even the device databases is fragmented itself! Hopefully it the future they could collaborate and give 1 great device database. If I will to bet, I will choose WURFL.
