    Device detection

    Hi,

    Vodafone live! (in sweden) has a redirection that detects your device and directs you to a special page that is customized for that device... for example When I go to the URL wap.vodafone.se with my 8910 I recieve a version without images... If I go there with my 7650 Im redirected to the "live!" site with Icons.. but since the 7650 also selects images the icons are linked... And when I go there with my Panasonic GD87 I am sent to yet another site.. where the text under the icons are links, since the panasoic doesn't select images..


    How can I detect what device is being used and redirect to a page suitable for that device...

    RE: Device detection

    Hi,

    WAP clients (browsers) send a user agent field when they fetch content from the origin server. A WAP terminal/browser is possible to identify from the user agent field. It delivers the basic information about the phone and it's firmware.
    See Nokia WAP Phones Characteristis document to find out the user agent field for each Nokia WAP Phone.
