Hello all, I've just signed up and hope to learn a few things about Mobile
detection via web.

Background: I'm old C++ guys with 15 or so languages I've used over the last
20 year.  13 of those years are in Web Development.

I'm currently looking into the detection of cell phones from a website, then
validating speed, validating if streaming exists, screen sizes, OS type,
etc..

I've started building something that will capture this info so I can start
analysing headers..
http://www.dp.bz - my test bed

I've looked at things like MOBI and MobileMultimedia, which seems to be
where I'm going.  But rather not pay for something, I think I can build
myself pretty easily.  For starters, I just want to figure out if someone
comes to my site, if I can stream them videos or not.  If they can stream
then based on speed what type of video and what bit rate..

Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.
