    I'm seriously considering buying either an iphone or droid soon, and I was wondering as to the availability of a certain feature of the android os.

    What I am wondering is if android can recognize a phone number listed on the screen, and automatically offer to dial that number when you tap on it. (Similar to what the iphone does with its "data detectors" feature.)

    Also, ideally, I'd like to be able to open a spreadsheet, (which would be sort of like an editable contact list) and then be able to tap on any of the phone #s in the app and have the phone dial that number.

    Is this feature currently available?

    It will depend on the application you use. Some of them offer that functionality and others do not.
