Bugzilla Bug 591 - dialing from contacts needs to be

What about two different redundant applications. There is a need for
an address book application anyway. Select a person, see info, send
sms, send mail, dial options. Allows to edit various information, etc.
The second application would be only a dialer-lookup, which is only
used to dial someone. Go find a person, tap it and it dials. Launching
this application should be as simple as possible (a physical button or
a finger gesture), after all this is a phone and it seems to me like a
good idea to emphasize it.
