Project Details

Support for tel: links was added to Fennec for Minimo, but we also need support for Windows Mobile. The plan is to create a basic XPCOM component to access the platform phone functionality and then modify the tel: protocol handler added in bug 437949 to use the XPCOM component on Windows Mobile.

Code from Minimo could be used as a basis for the XPCOM component:

Once this code is ported and tested, nsTelProtocolHandler should be updated to make use of this new XPCOM component.
