Currently the BlackBerry Playbook isn't detected correctly (shows Safari 0.0 as Browser and Device unknown), this is what the user agent looks like:

Your user agent: 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+

Browser info:
'id' => string 'SF' (length=2)
'name' => string 'Safari' (length=6)
'short_name' => string 'Safari' (length=6)
'major_number' => string '0' (length=1)
'minor_number' => string '0' (length=1)
'version' => string '0.0' (length=3)

Operating System info:

boolean false

A proper Icon for the Playbook could be the current iPad icon or maybe this one:

I'll have to mull this over. The Playbook could be orphaned by the time 1.6 comes out... ;)

Version 0.0 is correct imo since it is an override and we don't parse the third component of versions, eg 4.1.0 and 4.1.2 both simplified to 4.1.

Hopefully not ;)

The question is if maybe in case of this special behaviour the version number could be cut off to avoid confusion, and just have it as Safari or Safari for Playbook/Safari Mobile, something like this.

The Safari for BB handhelds reports correctly with version 6 + release numbers...

reopening re: comment:2 BB smartphones shouldn't be shown as Safari 6 -- this is reserved for Apple releases.
