I am interested in develop web pages specials for Android.
I know that the web browser is based on WebKit:
Does this means that the webpages are seen in Safari in the same way
they are seen in Android?

I would like to make a webpage which allows a user to click in some
button or link and launch a call.
Is it possible to access to some mobile expecific capabilities (such
call dialing, messaging, battery status...)  from a web?

 the webkit supporst full ajax.

as for dialing call, sms, and battery status, it's not supported out of the
box, but u can have an application running with a bridge to the webkit that
provides the system information.

to natively support from ajax, they need to provide something like the
intel's javascript web 2.0 kit, which has battery info. support.

Take a look at  which aims to provide exactly what
you are looking for.
Bhoost is an open source wrapper around Android's WebKit browser. It
offers JavaScript API to native Android capabilities.
To launch native dialer it follows a common technique used on iPhone
and s60 phones - all you need is to have an href starting with tel:
and Bhoost will launch the native dialer.
It also can launch camera to shoot and upload photos, has GPS api,
sensors api and more.
At this moment it does not have battery power and network status APIs,
but you can easily add them yourself.
If you have a problem with this - let me know and we will put this in
our Bhoost project plan.
