Arguments: Online social networking websites like XING and MySpace undergo a huge success. Mobile use of such applications bring new contact-possibilities. For example you can see what kind of music the person likes and start a conversation based on that knowledge. Moreover you could see if the other person has common friends with you.
Also remembering names of people gets much easier. A thinkable possibility would be to combine this application with glasses with head-up-display (like those I mentioned already) that shows you always profiles of people nearby, so there would be no need to check constantly your cell-phone.
