How do I get the android phone model number from a Windows PC connected via USB, provided all the USB device drivers are installed properly? Is there anyway to get it via Android SDK?

I don't know how to get it by the adb command.

But you can get it programmably with the SDK. There is a class Build which have many information of the current running phone, such as you wanted model number can be got by the Build.MODEL.

hey, thanks for the pointer, found out the adb command: adb shell cat /system/build.prop | grep "ro.product.model" – Anindya Chatterjee Mar 19 '12 at 15:39
