PlayBook’s browser identification

21 May 2011 1 mins BlackBerry, BlackBerry PlayBook

Similarly to my post about Kindle’s browser I looked how the browser in PlayBook is identifying self.

With the latest OS the User-Agent string is:

Mozilla/5.0 (PlayBook; U; RIM Tablet OS 1.0.0; en-US) AppleWebKit/534.11+ (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/0.0.1 Safari/534.11+

It contains “PlayBook”, so it’s easily grep-able.
