I am new to mobile development and tried to use MDBF in our new project. We used MDBF in our project and checked our pages using Nokia N73 model, pages are working fine. Checked the MDBF browser file for finding which browser tag supplying Nokia N73 capabilities
and found there are some 9 sequences (browser) represening Nokia N73 model alone.
1. Please explain how this 9 sequences of browser tags are processed to get that 67 capabilities of Nokia N73?
2. As per the requirement, we want to override some of the properties like screenwidth, screenheight...etc. How do we achive this by using MDBF, heard that we can add .browser file for that particular mobile device to override the capabilties. Can any
one please share how can we override some of the capabilites which found in the MDBF.
It is a very urgent requirement and any feedback would be much appreciated.

MDBF has a Final release announcement
Due to the organizational restructuring of the team that developed and supported the Mobile Device Browser file, we will no longer have the resources to support and update this CodePlex project. The team will be providing two more releases – one on
the 27th July 2010 and the final release on the 24th August 2010.
51degrees.mobi Foundation the .NET open source API is now in Codeplex
It easily detects if the request is coming from any mobile device and redirects user to mobile landing page. It has some user friendly samples to try out.
