The integration of 51Degrees.mobi Device Data with Kentico CMS allows Web developers to not just create high performance mobile Web applications, but to also display content optimized for various specific mobile devices. With mobile Web browsing set to overtake that of the desktop as early as 2013, the 51Degrees.mobi Device Data files connect websites to the future of the Web.

“The 51Degrees.mobi device database has been built from real handsets, manufacturers' specifications, usage information and website responses. It includes a wide range of relevant properties, making it an invaluable resource in the delivery of great mobile Web experiences,” said James Rosewell, CEO and Founder of 51Degrees.Mobi. “ Kentico customers can easily upgrade the device data to differentiate between tablets, smartphones, feature phones and traditional web browsers plus receive automated weekly updates by purchasing Premium device data from the 51Degrees.mobi web site and pasting a license key into Kentico CMS 7.”

Kentico CMS 7 offers advanced mobile site development capabilities, enabling developers to craft the design and content of pages to be easily viewable on various types of mobile devices. The ability to group devices with similar properties is now combined with 51Degrees.Mobi device detection to separate mobile, tablet, smartphone and non-mobile traffic. This allows the creation of specifically designed page layouts for each device profile within the CMS, offering mobile site previews directly in the browser. Visitors are therefore sent to the website that offers an optimal browsing experience according to their device, reducing scrolling and zooming for mobile browsers, and allowing companies to be pocket-accessible, crucial to any business on the Web.

“We are proud to be offering this revolutionary mobile technology as part of Kentico CMS 7, helping our clients build stronger brands and deliver customer satisfaction like no other medium can,” commented Petr Palas, Founder and CEO of Kentico Software. “Adding robust tools like this to the long list of enterprise features now available in our software not only helps our clients to step up a gear in their customer reach and engagement efforts, but also puts Kentico ahead in the delivery of an enterprise class CMS.”
