Getting Windows Mobile Owner Name and Device Name

It is sometimes useful to get the Owner Name and/or the Device Name of the Windows Mobile device. If you are wanting a Device Id, then see this posting.

There are different ways to get the Owner Name and Device Name:

For Owner Name, add the following reference to your project:

Microsoft.WindowsMobileMicrosoft.WindowsMobile.Status

Then in your code:

Imports Microsoft.WindowsMobile.Status
.
.
.
MessageBox.Show(SystemState.OwnerName)

To get the Device Name (which is what you find under Start/Settings/System Tab/About), you simply have to say:

MessageBox.Show(System.Net.Dns.GetHostName())
