My sample application wants to display the contacts (that were
previously added) in the phone and let user pick some of them. Are
there any APIs we can use to access the contents of the contacts ? If
contacts are stored in some database, do I need to know the underlying
schema of contacts ?

Check out: "Verizon's Samsung Galaxy Tab sprouts LTE, upgraded camera" - 

We knew that Honeycomb tablets would be a big deal here at CES, but one thing 
we didn't expect was for Samsung's Android Froyo-based Galaxy Tab to get a 
little spec bump already just a few short months after release. This one is 
strictly a Verizon special, stuffing in an LTE modem (while maintaining 
backward compatibility with Big Red's 3G network), adding another 200MHz to the 
Hummingbird processor for a grand total of 1.2GHz, and moving the rear camera 
from 3 megapixels to 5. No word on pricing or a release date -- but this 
definitely explains the recent price drop, eh?
