A content provider need not get its data from a DB, although that is probably the most common case. For home screen folders, in particular, it often makes sense to show non-DB data.

i found this from site .Is this correct?

ContentProvider are used to provide data from an application to another. ContentProvider do not store the data but provide the interface for other applications to access the data.
