Hello. Nice Builder. It helps me. Thank you.

Small improvement if you will:
Can happen with contact need add some photo, so I got solution for version more than Honeycomb:

    public AddContactIntentBuilder addPhoto(byte[] photo) {
        if (isHoneycomb()) {
            ContentValues addressData = new ContentValues();

            addressData.put(ContactsContract.Data.MIMETYPE,    ContactsContract.CommonDataKinds.Photo.CONTENT_ITEM_TYPE);
            addressData.put(ContactsContract.CommonDataKinds.Photo.PHOTO, photo);
            parcels.add(addressData);
        }
        return this;
    }

It normal for me, I do not need support of low-veriosn but, if you need this - you can get=)
