We discussed this a bit briefly the other day with Gonzalo and Daniel. 
The pro is, that code is not duplicated in activities. The con is, that 
activities should not depend on any hardware and use other methods to 
determine specific hardware (camera detection etc) and maybe there 
should be guidelines about good practices.

Good topic, we should see what makes sense and what we can agree on.
