Is sharing contacts across multiple iCloud accounts possible?
Does anyone know if it's possible share contacts across multiple iCloud accounts the same way that you can share calendars?
As of now I have my wife and I have two computers, two phones and an iPad sync'd to one mobile me account as we share contacts and calendars for our business.
Once iCloud is released, because of all of the other features like photostream and backups I would now like to have our phones sync'd to separate iCloud accounts to keep things clean and separate. The problem and questions is, if they are sync'd to separate iCloud accounts is there still a way to share our contact database between all these devices.
I guess the other angle would be this: Is it possible to sync your phone with multiple iCloud accounts and turn everything else but contacts off on one of them?

Only your main icloud account can use photo stream, docs & data, and backup though. But this works fine for contacts, calendars, email, etc.
Both him and his wife should add their shared me.com account as a secondary additional icloud account that will sync their contacts between each other.

Secondary iCloud account on Windows 7 PC
This thread has been very helpful to set up multiple iCloud accounts on our Apple devices (Mac, iPhones, iPad) - thank you!
I'm sharing contacts with my wife, and she uses a Windows PC (running Windows 7) as her desktop, with Outlook for mail/contacts etc... it's the only device left out of the mix right now - as it appears that she can only login to one (1) iCloud account (her own), and can't add a secondary one (mine).
Does anyone know if/how you can set up a secondary iCloud account for Outlook contacts on a PC?
