Welcome to Apache DeviceMap (incubating)
Apache DeviceMap is an incubating project to create a data repository containing device information, images and other relevant information for all sorts of mobile devices, e.g. smartphones and tablets.
While the focus is initially on that data, APIs will also be created to use and manage it.
The project started in January 2012, at the moment (March 2012) we are experimenting with prototypes that will help us gather device data. The next steps are to define a storage structure that supports long-term maintenance and evolution of this data, and generating views of the devicemap in neutral formats, probably JSON and/or XML.
