Get deep insight into Node.js applications with real-time metrics, CPU profiling, and heap snapshots with N|Solid from NodeSource. Learn more.

As HTML5 is becoming a really cool way of developing applications for the major smart mobile platforms (iPhone, Blackberry, Android, Palm Pre, all of them Webkit-based), it would be nice if one could invoke the dialer.
