While the Presence icon shows a contact's availability, the Contact Card shows additional information about the person and provides mechanisms for reaching that person, including controls for making calls, scheduling a meeting, sending e-mail, or starting an IM conversation. The Contact Card can also provide Calendar information about a contact, contact phone numbers, and free/busy information. The level of information on a person's Contact Card is dependent upon the <Access Level> that the contact has granted you to their presence information.
