This is a Python module exposing the Handset Detection API version 2.0.  If you
aren't sure what that means, please visit http://handsetdetection.com/ and then
read this document.

API
---

The API for handsetdetection.com is quite simple.  There are four available
methods: detect, model, track, and vendor.

detect(data, options)
    Get device information and capabilities given sufficient idenifying
    information, such as a user-agent or x-wap-profile.

    data - a dictionary containing a User-Agent, IP address, x-wap-profile,
           and any other information that may be useful in identifying the
           handset
    options - a string or list of options to be returned from your query,
              e.g., "geoip,product_info,display" or ["geoip",
              "product_info"], etc.

model(vendor)
    Get a list of models for a given vendor.

track(data)
    Track a series of requests from a user.  Tracking requests allows you to
    get better statistics from handsetdetection.com.

    data - a dictionary containing a User-Agent, IP address, x-wap-profile,
           and any other information that may be useful in identifying the
           handset

vendor()
    Get a list of handset vendors.

You should also know about two methods of this API interface:

set_v2_apikey(apikey)
    Set a new API key.  This is only necessary if you wish you use a new API
    key or have modified this package in a significant way.

set_credentials(username, secret)
    Your username is the e-mail address you used when you signed up at
    handsetdetection.com.

    The secret is the secret shown in your profile.  It's your API version
    2.0 secret - not your API version 1.0 APIKey.

For convenience, these methods are exposed as functions on the handsetdetection
package.  Should you desire additional flexibility, use the methods on the
handsetdetection.HandsetDetection class.
