The maemo 5 contact manager allows you to add a lot of details to a contact.

But it is very annoying to add images and personal informations if your contact list grows big.

Maemo contains a nice instant messaging client based on Telepathy. Maemo devices also usually are paired with a mobile phone.

Now this pairing is mostly used for internet connection, but it could also be used for allowing SMS become "just another conversation" in the IM client.
