Send a bookmarkable link via MMS

I've had a hunt around through various forums and dev guides for
Android, and I'm fairly sure this is not possible but it never hurts
to ask!

I know you can send a link to a web page via MMS, but is it possible
on Android to bookmark the link automatically if the user clicks the

User receives a MMS with a link to and a link saying
"Bookmark now!"
User clicks "Bookmark now!" and a bookmark is created in the browser
(or on the home screen)

I'm fairly certain this behavior would be allowed, but does anyone
know for sure?

Just theorizing, but if you had an Activity that had an intent filter for
whatever format you used for the the link you had for "Bookmark Now", that
Activity would be called and there do what you need. And I'm pretty sure you
can create browser shortcuts (though I haven't tried).

1. SDK USB driver for Vista SP1 won't install - Solution?


When I connect a G1 to Vista SP1, the phone is automatically recognized and 
Vista's own USB driver (WpdFs.dll and WUDFRd.sys) is installed, but that driver 
doesn't work.

Nothing I try seems to update or change the USB driver to the one supplied by 
the SDK...
Have tried 
uninstalling the device and re-scanning
Updating the driver in the Device Properties

When I try to force "updating" by manually pointing to the SDK driver, Vista 
says it's not even a driver. Of course, with Vista's improved security I can't 
disable/rename the Microsoft driver (permissions even an Admin can't touch).

Any ideas?
