Technical Summary This document defines the vCard data format for representing and exchanging a variety of information about individuals and other entities (e.g., formatted and structured name and delivery addresses, email address, multiple telephone numbers, photograph, logo, audio clips, etc.). Working Group Summary This document is a product of VCARDDAV WG. The document was nearly done around August 2010. Some late comments were received after that, asking for better alignment of the vCard 4.0 format with "hCard" and "PoCo" (Portable Contacts) formats. Most of the suggestions were applied, modulo removal of some properties for which there was no WG consensus to remove them. Document Quality The document was reviewed by multiple VCARDDAV WG participants. Several implementers are planning to implement the spec. Some implementations of earlier versions of the draft already exist.
