Contacts on Android Phone



We want to have the same set of contacts on 50+ phones for our customer, so i thought it's easy, just add one exchange mailbox which has these contacts to the phones. But the customer insists, that you CAN NOT send or recieve mails with the phones. Is something like this possible? is there maybe another way of bringing these (maybe like 15-20) contacts to the phones?

We're talking Sophos Mobile Advanced on Central and only Android Phones at the moment.

Thank you.
