How to detect if device is capable of calling and messaging

Some devices ie. Galaxy Tablet 10.1 can only send SMS, but cannot call. Some other devices like Asus Transformer don't even have SIM card.

How can I detect if device can makes calls? And how can I detect if device can send SMS?

Answer

Maybe you can query the PackageManager whether the system contains any component that can respond to ACTION_CALL and ACTION_SENDTO intents? You might need to add the "tel:" and "smsto:" scheme in the URI.
