    I just noticed, numbers are in SMS clickable, to call them.

    This is great for me with my very weak memory. I had with my old phone a big problem to remember a number in a SMS to deal it.

    I just think about exporting contacts from my database to my phone.

    A new idea would be to have a javascript application,
    main problem, is something like

    <a href=http://www.pege.org>Web</a>
    <a href=email:founder@pege.org>Email</a>
    <a href=phone:+43 699 17343674>Phone</a>

    possible on Adroid handies? Where clicking on the phone link would open the dialing dialog with this number?

    I have found on other phones (haven't tried it on Android) that a "tel:" prefix often works. So, in your example, I would change to this:


    <a href=tel:4369917343674>Phone</a>​


    Maybe this or something similar will work on Android.

    Why not just longpress on the home screen, add shortcut, direct dial and then choose your contact? Got 1 press shortcut dials to my wife and such on my home screen that way.

    Great! it works!

    This starts for me several hours or days programming to export an actual part of my database as a combined html/javascript on my cell phone.

    I have a self written data base called mind2.
    1994 to 1999 in Microsoft Access, 1999 converted to Perl.
    Sensless to export 18000 names from the database, most people I do not know, because they are only subscribers of my newsletter.

    So I have to find an intelligent method to export only what's just right now important and to organise it on 480x320 screen size.

    Next question, who has PERL running on his Android?
