WURFL, Wireless Universal Resource File

Written by on February 11, 2007 in Mobile Experience - No comments

WURFL is an open source project which aims to collect information regarding wireless devices’ configurations, capabilities and features. The main scope of this file is to collect as many information as we can about all the existing wireless devices that access WAP pages so that developers will be able to build better applications and better services for the users.
Many developers of mobile website know this resource but many don’t know it at all, while I find it very important for mobile application development to know the capabilities of the device so you can better serve content for it. The file is XML formatted about 4.26Mo, you can download a compressed copy from WURFL website.
