Windows Phone SIP types and HTML

Recently I had a conversation about what SIP is displayed when you are viewing an HTML page on the phone. Here’s what I discovered;

Consider the following phone page showing some html in the browser control;


Standard input type, standard text SIP


<intput type=”email” /> and we get the email SIP


<input type=”search” /> we get the Search SIP (note the highlighted submit)


<input type=”number” /> we get the number SIP


I haven’t tried all the combinations but you can see that the HTML5 tags and the Phone SIPs do try and play nicely together
