      Description

      Cordova does not offer any API to query the device for its capabilities, so one cannot know if it has a camera with which to take a picture without attempting to take a picture, falling through the error handler and then hard-match the error code – a pretty poor user experience. i have seen some suggestion to check device.camera, but a device may still have a library to pull an image from while not having a camera, so that isn't likely helpful. there isn't even any way to find the specific hardware revision to match off that.
