OSNews on the Linux-based Motorola Z6

Special thanks to MobileBurn’s Michael Oryl for sending me a screenshot of Opera under Linux on the Motorola Z6 cellphone rendering OSNews. Michael posted a review of the device yesterday.

Unfortunately Motorola messed up the user agent on this phone and so it will be difficult for most webmasters to automatically recognize the mobile nature of the device and serve it the right content:
MOTOROKR Z6/R60_G_80.xx.yyI Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0 Linux;
MOTOROKR Z6;nnn) Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.1 Opera 8.50[yy]


This is the admin speaking...

Moto no, but MIDP- yes. Think is, most webmasters don’t use it as a keyword for autodetection (I do).

Aren’t MOTO, MIDP and CLDC good hints that this is mobile?
