NSS: Supports ECDSA but when used in Firefox (the User Agent) it is not except if you add a suitable *external* crypto provider.

Windows: .NET 4.5 supports ECDSA but not for usage in TLS (WCF).  Seems to be the case even for W8.

Android: KeyChain in JellyBean (4.1) seems to not support ECDSA although it is hard to say since the KeyChain documentation is virtually non-existent (the source code is the documentation?).

I guess the RIM patent is still the issue here?
