Browser’s User-Agent of Kindle 4 Touch

5 Jan 2012 1 mins Amazon Kindle

The Kindle 4 Touch has, as expected, new (improved) browser experience. It’s pretty good in fact, for quick look and read on some pages or for reading articles in your Instapaper.

If you’re a site owner, you may want to know accesses from Kindle to your site (i.e. to provide simplified version). The User-Agent for Kindle 4 Touch with latest firmware (in time of writing this post – Kindle 5.0.0 (1370280073)) is:

Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux armv7l like Android; en-us) AppleWebKit/531.2+ (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/5.0 Safari/533.2+ Kindle/3.0+

Probably the interesting piece is Kindle/3.0+, so you can distinguish previous Kindle 3.
