The only two viable options are #1 and #4. I don't like #4 for the reason that it polluting navigator. I think under device it will give the developers a sense that all the APIs are organized under the device category.

You'll note that before expressing a relative preference, I wrote a few paragraphs explaining why. This isn't a vote people, your support for an option ought to be motivated (at the very least with "I support N because I agree with X")!
