Updated: Detect iPad & Amazon Kindle

I just updated the code to include detection methods for:

  • Apple iPad: Useful to know so that you can replace Flash content with content formatted using HTML5 or CSS/JS. You might even develop a special web site optimized for its display and new UI conventions.
  • Amazon Kindle: This device includes a browser, even though its eInk display is pretty much just black & white (and gray).

P.S. –

Thanks, Pieter V., for the bug review of the Java version of the code!

    Hi there,

    I’ve just tried to download the latest code from the http://code.google.com/p/mobileesp/ site but seem to get the error ‘svn: URL ‘http://mobileesp.googlecode.com/svn/trunk’ doesn’t exist’. I’m on Windows and have tried the command line svn as well as TortoiseSVN and get the same error.

    All help greatly appreciated and apologies in advance if I’m being daft.
