Bring back device.name for the devices name

      Description

      The value is currently deprecated but it could have been so useful.
      When a device is used to generate an access token you generally want to see which device that was on the side of the API key provider and as well as in the users dashboard so she can see which devices are associated with a certain app.
      At the moment we can use `device.uuid` but it would much more useful to have something like `Joe's SurfacePro` or `James' MacBook`.

      For Windows (RT) its actually pretty easy to find out the devices name, its a sync call even. For Android and iOS there is already working code at https://github.com/becvert/cordova-plugin-device-name

      Would that be worth considering and useful for others?
