The UAProf information, where provided and validated, can provide some essential and objective information about mobile devices. It has been recognised, however, that in many domains of content authoring and adaptation that such information is insufficient. The DDWG will be exploring the bigger picture, and looking at ways that a general device description repository could be achieved, such that it can encompass UAProf and other sources of information, avoiding replication of services, and providing the necessary features of discovery, trust, efficiency and related information management issues. The DDWG is specifically directed to liaise with UAProf and other related groups to this end. Planned W3C Notes will explain in further detail, and these shall get a public airing during this year. Input from interested parties via the public mailing list will be encouraged. The group will also solicit specific information from key parties where appropriate.
 
I hope this adds some clarity.

The issue of discovering where such information can be found, how it is accessed, represented, managed etc is part of the charter of the MWI Device Description Working Group [1]. Hopefully when the group completes its work there will be better clarity in this area.

Hi,
In order to develop an interface to send MMS from a Website galery, I'm wondering if a list of the capabilities of the most used portable phones does exist?
 
In particular, I would like to be able to know the display resolution (ex. 140x140 pixels) for every device.
 
Does someone know if such a list exists (XML or another format)?
 
Thank you in advance for your suggestions and help.
 
JoŽl.
