I've heard the term 'contact manager' many times, but it appears it's
different things to different people. Anyway, are you considering the
fact they may want to sync with a palm like device?
I use jpilot with my palm. It has a calendar with reminders, phone
list, which you can break down into separate categories, todo list and a
memo pad. Probably not a fully functional CM as some folks go, but I
find very few folks use the more esoteric functions of these packages.

I didn't have to buy my radio from a specific company to listen
to FM, why doesn't that apply to the Internet (anymore...)?
