No, what I suggested is only for a perfect match, as the example
above. For your case, the match score will be 0 or a relatively
small number, what you might present maybe:
"We don't know your device or we think your device looks like.."
I wasn't talking about the devices we currently support, I'm talking
about the general case. There's very little point in coding UIs for just
"Nokia 7210c" if it's not usable for all S40 phones we will support.
I agree if we have can automatically detect 'model name' for
a device, we can provide much better matching capability, but this
is not supported currently and need more work to do: using
default device name, bluetooth profile, SymcML DevInf....
In your case, if we can detect 'jku' has a model name 'Nokia 7210c'
and even have the device type 'S40', we can provide a much better

Yes, detection the model name for a phone would need additional work and
I don't think it can get into SyncEvolution 1.0

I think the only missing part is 'current model name'. Get the information
from BT-name seems problematic, how do you know this is a model name
not a user defined name? From Bluetooth profile can help detect the model
name if the phone supports and from DevInf we may even detect the type
of the phone.
Well, I imagine it would go like this:
* Get device specific data that might help:
- the BT profile
- bt name
* go through all templates, look for matches between the device
specific data and the "supported models" list in the template
* if you get a good enough hit return the "supported model" as the model
So user defined name would be used to match but would never be returned
as a model name.
