HTC Hero and Samsung Alias 2 Not Recognized As Mobile


I am getting IsMobileDevice returned as "false" for both an HTC Hero phone I am testing with as well as a Samsung Alias 2. For the Samsung, I am testing using a emulator from a desktop browser, but my customer is also not seeing the expected results even with the physical device. The user agents are listed below:
HTC Hero => Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; U; Android 1.5; en-us; HERO200 Build/CUPCAKE) AppleWebKit/528.5+ (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/3.1.2 Mobile Safari/525.20.1
Samsung Alias 2 (From my emulator) => SCH-U750L/1.0+NetFront/
I am not able to get the user agent from the customer with the Alias 2 directly as they claim to have trouble navigating to a site that will display it to them.
If you could please state when you may be including these devices as mobile, that would be great.

Thanks for this.
We've created a work item to add support for the User Agent you provided for the HTC Hero. This will be part of a future release.
The User Agent you provided for the Samsung currently has isMobileDevice = true in our Mobile Device Browser File.
