Android and business cards

We are used to the idea of VCard and cell phones. That is, exchanging contact information via bluetooth should be quite easy and an old story. What we know is that firing up BT, selecting the VCard and so on is quite slower than just handling out a business card.

Now think about this: an Android powered application able to broadcast (or unicast, in case) your "Social Network Presence". That is, URLs to your linkedin profile, facebook pop and so on.

Think about including some snippet of information from those networks and a little nice "who do we both know?" function. A must have for the next conference...
