Device information matrix #26

There should be a place to compile information, in an easily browsable matrix (or set of matrices), about all the RIM devices that developers may care about. This information is currently scattered around, between various self-compiled tables and product web pages, making it hard to find a central composite source of info.

Off the top of my head, I can think of the following compilations of device information that I've wanted or seen compiled from various sources:

  • Devices vs. supported OS versions
  • Devices vs. input form-factors (keypads, hot-keys, touchscreens, etc.)
  • Devices vs. screen resolution / pixel density
  • Devices vs. hardware features
  • Localized standard key-bindings for common user/app functions, across the above
  • Known issues with different devices

The idea is to not only have a simple device info database, but to also have a way to get at a cross-product-line view of useful information. This section could also link to code samples for programmatically categorizing devices with respect to the above, when possible.
