    Does your WiFi-only Android 4 tablet have a widget for contacts?
    ICS is supposed to come pre-installed with people.apk (the updated contacts app), which is missing on my installation (4.0.3), but mine has the older contacts.apk (from Android Gingerbread/Honeycomb).
    There is no widget to launch it, but apps like Google Voice, etc. can launch it when I need to add a new contact through GV.

    Is there any way to create a widget to manually launch it to add new contacts?

    The ICS Contact widget (part of the People app) on my TF101 only shows one contact on the home screen at a time. It does not allow scrolling, or adding new contacts - oops I mean People.

    Looking in the market, it appears that scrolling people/contact widgets are not mainstream.
