As the topic says, we are exploring the option of treating some Kindle tablets as mobile. is-tablet has to return false for these devices. Can this be done by the WURFL team in a subsequent release?

Let me know if you need more information.

Hi Aditya,

To reiterate Amar's previous statement regarding your use case, since your device is advertised as a tablet, we can not set these devices as false for the is_tablet capability. If developers would like to create a single mobile experience for all mobile devices (tablets included) they should use the is_mobile capability which will return true for both tablets and smartphones. Another option they can explore would be the is_touchscreen capability which will also return true for both cases.

If you need any further clarification, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at
