Another strategy some sites use is to let the user create a login page
with their ID information when they first signup/login, and then have
them bookmark that page or add it to their favorites (bookmark is just
a link which would need to encode the info in the URL, favorites saves
the page as a cached copy in the phone, which could also put arbitrary
information in a FORM).  If using the FORM they'd just load the page
and click submit, otherwise with a bookmark they'd directly access the
login page.  The FORM has the advantage that you can store more
information, including large private keys, and can optionally have the
user enter a short numeric password (with user ID already known) for
improved security with little loss in convenience.

This is nice because it works the same on all keitai.
