I have bought a new phone and need to change the old device name to the new one. How do I change the device name in Google Play (formerly Android Market)?

What is a device name? – Richard Borcsik Jun 14 '12 at 7:12
Where do you want to see the change in your device name? Are you referring to the device list in the Google Play Store website? – SamSPICA Jun 14 '12 at 9:13
@Mihir It has a market tag so I guess not – Richard Borcsik Jun 14 '12 at 11:21

Log in to the web interface of the Play Store and click the settings button in the top right corner and select My Orders and Settings (or use this direct link). Next, select the Settings tab and you'll see your devices. From here, just click on Edit and type the name you wish to give the device and click Update.
