Default How to detect touch/non-touch device

Please Login to Remove!

I need to build one project for both touch and non-touch devices. How can I detect touch/non-touch device at runtime?

Thanks in advance.

Look at the device model number.

DeviceInfo.getDeviceName()

Of course, thre is a method to detect a touch screen in later releases, but it is not in the pre 4.7 API's so you cannot call it.
