Device vs OS version list

  Hi all,

 

Does anybody know of a document somewhere that lists which devices come with which OSs? I'm aware that the user or even the operator may update the OS, but still a listing containing the original (i.e. minimum) OS version for each device  wold be quite useful. If there was one that specified all the OS versions available for all the devices (say 83xx => 4.2-4.6), that would be even better.

 

Clients seem to want to specify the target platform in terms of device model numbers, which is quite logical from their point of  view (well, even from mine). Also if one is targeting a specific OS release then it's nice to know which actual devices will be able to run the software.

 

  Thanks,

    Laszlo

Re: Device vs OS version list

Thanks, it's really useful, and it answers half of my question, but I'm more concerned about the earliest OS for each device. So if fr example someone says that he wants an app to be compatible with the 8700 then what OS level to target.

Well an official list would be nice. Is anybody aware of such a thing? I guess there isn't, but it's pretty strange (I couldn't stand not mentioning SonyEricsson or Nokia again...)
