Hi,

Maybe you missed my initial message : I am a contributor [IPMC] to the
Apache DeviceMap Project. [http://incubator.apache.org/devicemap/]

DeviceMap does expert "UA-sniffing" both client and server-side.
Apache Cordova on the other hand is a mobile development framework which
uses HTML5/CSS/Javascript and via plug-ins allows access to device
features not or not consistently accessible [yet] via HTML5. The whole
is packaged in a wrapper targeting a specific platform [iOS, Android,...].
So, no 'UA-sniffing' going on there to format content, but HTML5/CSS and
javascript running inside a container which via the abstraction of a
"WebView" and plug-ins allows access to things like accelerometer,
camera, address-book etc.

If you are interested in the intricacies of "UA-sniffing", client and
server-side, the use-cases, the esoterica etc I'll gladly contribute
what I can.

Regards,
eberhard speer jr.
