Subject: Launch on Android

Hello...  I'm looking to launch the Facebook app from my application.  On
iOS, this works great:

launch url "fb://profile/##############"
if the result = "no association" then
  put "" into tUrl
  mobileControlCreate "browser","theBrowser"
  mobileControlSet "theBrowser","url",tUrl	
end if

Basically, it tries to launch the Facebook app on the users device.  If it
fails (likely because the FB app isn't installed), then it creates a browser
and opens the Facebook page.

My question is, how can I do this on Android since "launch" isn't supported
on Android?

Thanks in advance,
