Just simply paste the URL inside of your email and mobile mail clients will recognize it and open the web browser when you tap on it. For example, Ecological Footprints of Nations is a link you can tap on if reading this post on your iPad or Android tablet and it will open up the web browser and point it to http://www.arcgis.com/home/webmap/viewer.html?webmap=1a40fa5cc1ab4569b79f45444d728067.
