In the BAR descriptor file I can see this permission: <action>read_device_identifying_information</actio
It makes me think that we should be able to read some device information, such as the UDID. Is it actually possible, and how?
Thanks in advance.

Thanks a lot, it's now more clear for me why this permission is available
Do you know if there is a C/C++ equivalent? Or if it is possible to call some Air functions from an app developed in C/C++?

I also need this. I tried to use confstr but it doesn't return anything.
confstr( _CS_HW_SERIAL, buffer, sizeof( buffer ) );
I also have what I would except is the permission set in the bar

Currently, there is no native API to obtain the PIN of a BlackBerry PlayBook. However, this is a high priority API that we're looking to provide soon.

The PIN would be the best thing to use as a GUID. Just hold tight a little longer on this feature if you can.

Using the 2.0 beta 3 NDK you can now obtain the device's PIN. Refer to deviceinfo found here:
