On my HTC desire, the 15 digits in the hostname following "Android_" equates to the unique IMEI of the phone's cellular radio. The global GSM standard requires that this number is printed on the device but can also be found as follows:
1. In the phone app, press *#06#
and the IMEI should appear in a popup window (not sure if this works for CDMA)
2. In Android, go to Settings
/ About Phone
/ Phone Identity
What I'm also unsure of is how non-cellular Android devices generate their hostname as my tablet is using a hexadecimal sequence that doesn't look like the MAC address or the device Serial Number.
