This ability is most likely coming in a future api update release.

Does any other runtime like Android or Adobe AIR support this feature. Is it that with the current SDK its simply not possible.

I tried converting the default contact manager example in Android for BB10, but it crashes for some reason.

Re: How to access contacts and messages in BB10?

Its not available in AIR too.  To use it in AIR it needs to be in the native SDK first (then someone can write an ANE). I am planning an App for BB10 where i need this, but don't get any information if contacts-access will come somehow. Is this a "SuperApp"-feature? I have seen slides, which show that only Cascades and Webworks-apps will get SuperApp-capabilities. So what does it mean for AIR and Qt?
