PalmOS has done this for many, many years. Clicking the contacts button launches the contacts application, holding it down launches that application to beam the owner's "business card" to another user.
There is no doubt a ton of prior art here. The idiots in the patent office who granted this need to be fired, let alone software patents thrown in the dustbin of "intellectual property" history.
