Unfortunately gmail contacts are not currently exposed through the gdata API according to http://code.google.com/p/gdata-issues/issues/detail?id=25 . Contacts can be exported as CSV files through the gmail interface though, so read-only functionality should be reasonably easy to implement. -- Søren O.
