Though in this case what you will probably find is that the error is
happening down in the HAL for the device's camera, so propagating more
detailed information back up into the Java layer is tricky, which is why it
isn't happening.  Not to say it wouldn't be nice to improve, but probably a
fair amount of effort to do so.

If this is the case, it is also nothing to do with 2.1 but specific to the
Nexus device.  Which is also likely because, as I've said, the 2.1 software
it really very similar to 2.0.1 in all of the generic parts...  and really,
I'll bet there are far fewer differences between the 2.0.1 and 2.1 platforms
than there are between say some version of the platform and one with HTC's
Sense customizations. :}

Anyway, before people jump all over me -- these are all areas we have and
will continue to improve the platform in.
