Get device manufacturer/model information

    Question

  • I am trying to fetch manufacturer and model information about the device we are running on.  I ran a loop enumerating all the devices on my device, and dumping all the device info but nowhere in there did I see information about the manufacturer or model.  If it makes a difference I was doing this on the original Consumer Preview as I hadn't updated at that point.

    Regards, Guy

  • Hi Guy,

    The manufacturer and model information is not available to Metro style apps.

  • Hey Rob,

    Do you have any idea whether this information will be made available in the API? My company also has a need for this information in our application which we're porting to Metro.

    Thanks,

    Jon

  • Me, too - would be very helpful in many situations. What about these? Would any of them provide something similar?
