What is the UA string for Android's browser?

Hayden there are many different phones and non phone devices that run Android, and I am pretty sure they each have their own user agent.

@hayden, MathiasTCK is correct, there are many different Android phones that might change the UA string depending on browser release. This is the user agent string [1] for Android Cupcake version. If you wanted to detect for Android, though, I would simply match on the "Android" string.

[1] Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; U; Android 0.5; en-us) AppleWebKit/522+ (KHTML, like Gecko) Safari/419.3
