    Yes, See this link
    http://djce.org.uk/dumprequest

    Especially the User agent ! (HTTP_USER_AGENT)
    You can also get the OS and browser edition, which the device has.

    Here is a example script especially for you kin.leung

    Hmph,

    IMHO, you can't do that! You can't possibly know what applications are installed in the device.

    Hold on, I can see one way to do it !

    Logs and PHP, and Pys60 ! Yes you can do that.

    Just write a simple python script that logs the applications installed to a log or a text file.

    Using PHP upload this Log or text file to a server. And there it is you can now see the applications installed on the device.
