Data storage

The complete data (including the images as blobs) is stored data/meta/addressbook.sqlite3 and can be backuped easily. An addressbook (sqlite3) with 1.000 contacts has a size of approximately 4.1 MB if every contact has a photo. The photo is scaled down and compressed, so it uses about 3-4kB. It is stored within the database as a blob (base64encoded).
