We’re delighted to share the news that we have acquired the online presence of Handset Detection.

All good things must come to an end. However, in the case of 51Degrees, the good things keep coming! We're delighted to share the news that we have acquired the online presence of Handset Detection.

After conception in 2008, Handset Detection became a leader in the device detection industry. Richard Uren, one of the founders, nurtured the growth of the company over many major milestones. From the first positive cashflow, to the billionth device detection made, it's always a big deal when your baby takes their first steps on a global scale!

But time, market pressures and amazing opportunities mean that sometimes you have to let your prize ram go off to another farm. Richard has decided it is time to let Handset Detection go so he can move on to greater things (he did mention something about needing time off to practice his banana bread-making and going surfing...).

I am incredibly happy that Handset Detection customers can find a new home with 51Degrees. James and the team provide a fantastic service which I highly recommend and look forward to using in future projects. Richard UrenFounder, Handset Detection

That's where 51Degrees comes in. We never let good things go to waste, so we saw a chance to carry on Handset Detection's impressive online legacy. We have agreed to take over both their website and social media presence which allows us a fantastic back-catalogue of blogs and a superb website to shepherd in to the next decade.

We are delighted to carry on the online legacy that Richard leaves behind. With Handset Detection sadly shutting down, the opportunity to take on their website and social media history was one we could not turn down. We wish Richard every success in his new venture and we look forward to working with Richard's customers should they wish to use our market-leading solution. Paul AckermanFinance Director, 51Degrees

Don't worry Richard, we'll take great care of your legacy; HandsetDetection.com is in safe hands with us and we wish you every success in the future.
