Winter 2011 News Letter

We've been busy creating new mobile products and services to benefit your business.

You may not be aware but, since September, the WURFL Device file has been commercialised. This means using newer WURFL versions for commercial purposes will require a commercial license.

In response to this and other feedback from our customers, we have launched our own Device file. It comes in two versions:

  1. an entry-level open source version called Lite, which can be used commercially and is entirely free; and
  2. a Premium version that provides a comprehensive set of device attributes to help you create the very best mobile experience for your customers.  

Our device detection file contains the very latest smartphones, feature phones, tablets and consoles. Naturally, it's fully compatible with our Foundation API and Framework products, which have also been upgraded to version 2.
