The answer to your question is:
When you enter your GMail account to your Tab, all your contacts will get synced into the Tab. So will your GMail. All your paid apps will be marked Purchased on the Android Market and is free to download.
Do note, that if you made any changes on your contacts in any one of these devices, the other device will reflect the same changes sooner or later. The two devices will continually sync.
If you buy apps in one device, it will also be marked "Purchased" in the Android Market of the other device and free to download.
And if you buy yet another Android device, it will be the same thing.
I should know. I keep a collection.
When apps are purchased, they belong to that Google account period.
If a device is sold, and it will have a new Google account on it, no, the apps cannot be transferred to the new owner. It will have to do a clean reset to a blank slate. The new owner will then enter his or her Google account, which opens up his or her paid apps from the Android Market. And the same process repeats over again.
