Question: Manufacturer Id RIM

Within my Android app I need to determine whether the app is running on a Playbook / BB10.

Is it possible to use android.os.Build.MANUFACTURER for this purpose like for 'standard' Android devices?
(I don't have a Playbook (yet), that's why I'm, asking).


If yes:

What would be the manufacturer ID for Research in Motion devices?


In no:

Is there any other way to determine whether the android app is running on a Playbook / BB10?


Thanks in advance for a reply!
