Addressbook application

The osso-addressbook application is the main interface to the Maemo contacts database, which in turn stores its contacts in the so called "Evolution Data Server" (EDS). The Maemo contacts are stored in a sqlite3 database located at /home/user/.local/share/evolution/addressbook/system/contacts.db, but this database is managed by EDS and it's best to interface with EDS directly.

Telepathy integration

The address book also integrates directly with any messaging and telephone accounts that are set up, for example, if a jabber/XMPP account is online, the contacts of that account will be shown in the address book, as well as the online status of the contact.
