You can thank Google for that. They do not provide any API to notify an application when contacts change, so all Blink can do is poll for changes once in a while (that means transferring all your 2000 contacts and comparing them to see if anything changed). Whatever Google uses to instantly update the contacts on their android devices is a hidden API they did not make available for the rest of the world.
