So, what you want is your same BBID/AW account (with all purchase records) transferred from that old device over to this new one? See this:
Basically, its a matter of logging into BBID/AW using the exact same credentials...then it will drop off the old BB and switch to the new one. The only caveat is apps that you may previously have had that are not compatible with this new device...they won't be available for reinstallation.

There are no old purchase records.In fact, there is no relationship between the two devices at all. The problem is that when I log in, it only shows the old device as 'available'. I need to delete that one and add , for all intents and purposes, a completey new and distinct device.

OK, I will try to describe the situation better :-)
- I have a new device.I would like to download applications from APp World to my desktop, then transfer them to the device.
- I sign in to App World. It filters by device. Under 'Available Devices', it shows my old BB and my PlayBook.
- I don't really want to to abandon the old account, and I shouldn't have to.
- What I would like to do is (i) delete the old device and (ii) add the new device.
Using App World from the device was the key step. Thanks for the tip :-)
