ITSmobile, screen and function key design/use on mobile devices


Looking at ITSmobile here to use with mobile scanners (ala Intermec and Symbol). With SAP console in the past we've relied on function keys to provide the various options on a particular screen (say F2 = Post Receipt, F3 = add item) which is quick and easy to do for the user.

When using ITSmobile and a browser on the handheld/mobile, how should screens be designed for similar ease of use? Can the function keys on the device still drive functionality using this approach, or do they now have to 'push buttons' (with a stylus?) on the browser screen? We need to be able to have something they can use quickly and easily like in the past with SAPconsole.
