Unfortunately RAPI doesn't directly provide a mechanism for this.  It does, however, provide a generic mechanism for invoking custom methods.  Neil Cowburn discussed getting a Device ID via RAPI in his blog.  Getting the device name would be nearly identical.

Another thing you can do is set up some type of master table.

We have a table called tblSellerMast, where we store the salesperson (use of the device) account number, preferences and a few other things.

You could easily store the device type/name/inventoryNumber here and use standard rapi calls to retrieve the information.
