Hm, something like:
QList<Solid::Device> list = Solid::Device::listFromQuery(
    "[ IS StorageAccess and Block.device == '/dev/sdb1' ]");

if (list.isEmpty()) {
    // Whoops, /dev/sdb1 isn't available, or is not something we can mount
} else {
    // Cool! We found the thing to mount!

Would work I think.
