Re: Unique number for BlackBerry PlayBook like IMEI,PIN ?

Hello there,


I have another question regarding this topic: which identifier should I use and why?


For instance, when I update the OS or wipe my Playbook data, will any of these changes?

Is any of these identifiers globally unique - e.g.: world region ids like Europe, USA and Asia? 


I couldn't find anything related to this on the development guidelines. 


Please let me know which identifier are you using, if any.

There are both a serial number and a PIN number in the PlayBook. The serial number will never change, and the PIN is not affected by an OS update or, I believe, a wipe either. Look for qnx.system.Device in the Tablet OS SDK for Adobe AIR docs.
