Google recently added a new feature to Gmail that helps making it easier to add a new contact: templates. "Now, when you click "More actions" while you create a contact or edit an existing contact, you can select the business template to quickly add fields for the job title, company name, mobile phone and work phone."
Google Contacts lets you add or delete fields, but you can't delete the fields from a template. Hopefully, Google will allow users to create custom templates and import some of the data from Google Profiles.
Below is a picutre of the new template:
