Identify mobile web traffic using a comprehensive set of device and browser specific properties
Every mobile phone and tablet is different. They have many different properties including screen sizes, keyboards, web browsers and operating systems. The 51Degrees database contains thousands of devices, including games consoles, eBook readers, tablets, smart phones and feature phones. It is built and maintained from manufacturer's specifications, our usage information and web site responses. Using this information enables a web site to detect a user's physical device type.
This can be used to:
- Redirect a customer to a mobile website
- Improve the customer experience by utilising properties such as screen size and input method
- Validate a user's mobile device type and software version before offering downloadable content or attempting to interact
- Tailor the experience by using other functionality on the device, such as the type of keyboard or camera.
