In response to my post the other day about detecting wireless devices, a kind “Web Developer Evangelist” from a company called Dokoni writes with a few sample HTTP_USER_AGENT strings:

  • UP.Browser/3.1.04-SY03 UP.Link/
  • Nokia6210/1.0 (03.60)
  • Motorola VoxGateway/2.0
  • Palmscape/PR5 (PalmPilot Pro; I)
  • Mozilla/1.22 (compatible; pdQbrowser 1.08; PalmOS 2.0)
  • Mozilla/1.0[en]; Go.Web/1.1 (compatible; MSIE 2.0; HandHTTP 1.1; Palm)
  • Mozilla/2.0 (compatible; MSIE 3.02; Windows CE; 240×320)

Oy. Somehow I was hoping that this would be easier or that there might be some reasonable standards emerging in UA strings, but it seems not. I can understand why a company would make a go at selling a product that sifts through this morass to do something useful with the information.
