I am fooling around with that problem myself.
What I was able to find is that you should be able to make an http connection and pass in "tel:555-1212" instead of a URL. I've tried with no success, but I don't think I am setting up the request properly.
If you look at the HTML that the browser sees when it displays "linked" phone numbers, you see the <a> tags with an "href"="tel:...."
I think what you have to do is fire off the browser with the right args and it will redirect for the phone. Like I said, I've fooled with it a bit but get an arrayOutOfBounds exception when firing off the browser.
Anyone care to add ideas, or see if they can get it to work?
