For those of you that have installed the beta of iOS 5, can you tell me what they have done differently with the Contacts application?
HTC Sense droids and Blackberry's have integrated social networking, call history, and email history into their Contacts applications. Selecting an individual "card" from the application brings up their information as well as status updates on facebook/twitter, past calls, and past emails.
Has Apple done anything like this for iOS 5?

Why is that a bad thing? The way its been implemented in HTC Sense droids is by having their latest status update at the bottom of the contact card.
On the Blackberry, you can see your past email conversations with the contact at the bottom of their contact card along with a call history with the contact.
Its not obtrusive or getting in the way of anything.

I want my contacts. I want someone's phone number, email address, mailing address, or maybe birthday. I don't care what they're up to - if I did I'd go to Facebook. And I certainly don't want the contact information of all my "friends" from Facebook, most of whom are only there due to my blog.
