Platform by Devices (SmartPhone, HandHeld, WebTV, WorkStation ...)

  1. Mobile devices (all: phones, pda, game console, media player, etc)
    1. Mobile phones
      1. Phone type
        1. Feature phones (regular cellphones) with a tiny screen and a numeric keypad. These devices account for the vast majority of the market (at least 85% in some reports).
        2. Smartphones, in a range of form factors, typically with a mid-sized screen and a full A-Z keypad.
        3. Touch-screen phones (such as the iPhone) with a nearly device-sized screen and a true GUI driven by direct manipulation and touch gestures.
      2. Operating system (for example: Symbian, iPhone OS, Android, Windows mobile, linux, RIM, ...)
      3. Screen resolution (for example: 240x320, 240x400, 176x220, 128x160, 320x240, ...)
  2. Other (the list needs frequent updates)
