Oh it can do a lot more than that - HTML supports file up/download so you
can do neat things like:

	"Download recent calls as .csv"
	"Download contacts list as .csv"
	"Upload new phone book"
	"Install package"  (when you've got it on PC disk ready to add)

	Make GPS connection [with a window showing current status of
connection etc + disconnect button]
	Query GPRS co-ordinates

are really easy.
