UAProf / User Agent Profile Reference



Preferences - Do not show ads

UAProf / User Agent Profile was defined by the Open Mobile Alliance (formerly the WAP Forum) for detecting user agent types and device capabilities. The User Agent Profile schema has specified a set of base attribute names so that different mobile device manufacturers can use the same set of base attribute names to describe the features and capabilities of mobile devices. For example, the screen size of a cell phone is always found in the ScreenSize attribute of the HardwarePlatform component no matter who the manufacturer is. In this reference, you can find the base attribute names, their meanings and some examples.
