CM9 Touchpad identifies itself as an "Acer A510". Can I edit this string?

Hi all, when trying to do my duties on the HP "Other HP Products and Technologies/webOS Hardware & Software" section of their forum, when I use the Android User agent of the stock browser, their forum software sees my device as an "Acer A510". This gets tacked onto each post I make!

I'd like to look like more of a "team player" and have the forum see my device as an "HP TouchDroid" (for example).

Anyone know how and where this string can be edited?

Thanks!

Alas! That string didn't exist in build.prop.

Is there a program you could recommend that can search the entire device for "Acer A510"? The file manager recommended in the thread seems to only search for file names globally...

Hmm. I was almost positive that it was in build.prop.
I can't think of any apps that would search for a particular string, but if you have adb installed (which i am sure you do), then you can use a shell to run Linux commands.
With the device connected run:

adb shell

You should be able to use the below command to find your string.
