More and more smartphone manufacturers have been moving towards on-screen buttons, with Google really pushing for it over the physical button alternative.

Breaking News: Windows Phone 7 ROM for Upcoming HTC Device Surfaces
Seeing some videos of the new Windows Phone 7 and test driving the operating system through an emulator is nice and already gets the discussions and speculations flowing.

There already are many solutions on the Google Play store if you want to send a link to one of your devices -- but what if you wanted to do it quickly without having to install any software or logging in to a website on the recipient end?
