I realize they are very early versions - but yeah they look great.  I
just installed both Dates and Contacts.  I can't figure out what you
can import contact-wise... there's no mention of supported formats.
The dates app looks quite polished, but only seems to support day view
and no import or subscribe option - so pulling in a published .ics
(Google Calendar for example) looks tough for now.
