how to differentiate between winodws 8 phone and tab during enrolment in MDM

    General discussion

  • Hi,

    I wanted to know how we can differentiate between Windows 8 phone and tab during enrolment in MDM?

    We need to check this because if 1 user has both phone and tab then we won't be allowing email access on both devices.

  • By "tab", do you mean "tablets"? The Windows Phone operating system doesn't run on tablets, so that's a pretty easy check.

    I don't know why you would restrict email access in this way either. It would be a pain for both you and your users.

  • Thank you for your kind reply.

    As windows tablets (Windows surface, surface 2 ,surface pro) has Windows RT OS which doesn't have inbuit MDM agent (Windows Phone 8 > Settings > Company Apps) as Windows phone 8 has, so can we make an native application which can work as MDM agent?

  • Windows RT 8.1 has new API's and components that allow MDM solutions like MobileIron and Airwatch to manage the device. I would upgrade your devices to 8.1 and engage your MDM partner for support.
