From the hardware info, I'm able to get the device model number, serial number, etc....
So how can I detect whether the device is a smart phone or tablet, is there any indicator other than comparing the device model?
Thanks in advance.

hmm isn't playbook categorized as a tablet?
I've thought of using the screen size to determine but I'm afraid what if BB release some kind of a smaller version of playbook like iPad mini? or do they specify the minimum screen width/height for a tablet?

The answer has been already given in one of the posts above i think the only difference between tablet and phone at present is the size , based on the size you present the user different ui components !!
So you can make your own utility based on size to consider it as a phone or a tablet !!

The PlayBook's screen size is 1024x600.
Yes, if you're using the 10.2 (or any 10.x) compiler, you're app will not run on the PlayBook.
If you're using the Native PlayBook compiler (currently 2.1) you're app will generally run on the BB10 phones. I'm sure there are other differences, but for me, it was screen sizes and dialog boxes that I had to change for my apps.
