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 on that data, APIs exist to use and manage it.

The project started in January 2012, at the moment (August 2014) we completed our first public data and client release.

For more info please subscribe to our developers' list and join the fun!

Project artifacts are available on maven:
