Just a question:


which is the best aproach for login in a Widget app that access to a corporate data in BIS (not in BES)


With Request.Headers.Get("Rim-device-id") we have PIN device,

Re: Widget app: login model?

You would likely be more secure with a username/password.  Someone could mimic the header in a general web request with the PIN of the device.  As well, if the device switched owners, the new owner would have access to the old owner's data.
