Linkedin goes mobile

Linkedin announced the availability of a mobile version of its popular professional oriented social network.
Ok, it's an improvement - now you don't need to actually exchange business card anymore. No mere: "Nice to meet you, Tom, here you are my business card".
Finally you can do something like "Nice to meet you Tom","Sure Paul, wait a minute please.. let it connect..." "I'm waiting" "..sure, just a second, here we are, logging in.." "I'm still waiting" "..and now tapping here and there and here I should be finally able to add you to.. where are you going Paul?".
You build a mobile version of a social network and still you don't embed a simple contact exchange protocol between phones? Am I asking too much for this century?
