Dear Gavin,

Welcome to our group, and thanks for the introduction.
I would like to introduce the work of this group a bit more in details. 
its home page is at http://www.w3.org/2008/MW4D/
our focus is the use of mobile technologies in developing countries, and 
particularly in the Socio-economic development sector.
Given your particular interest, and your technical questions, i would 
recommend you also follow the public-bpwg list (see 
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-bpwg/ ). You would surely 
find there more people that could answer your technical questions, 
particularly around device detection, and device description repository.

Best
Stephane
