What's the best app to sync with my cell phone?

I'm in the market for a new cell phone. One thing I've always hated is re-entering contact information between phones (I tend to break them). Many of the new cell phones come with USB connection capability. I would like to find some sort of contact manager/email program that can synchronize a phone with linux.

This is probably coming from left-field, and I'm imagining linux hasn't taken this step yet. I'm hoping some gadget geeks out there have this sort of thing running already.

So the two questions are:

What are some linux-friendly phones?
What app should I use to sync?

One great thing about the Android phones are that if you have Google Contacts set up, you don't even have to do anything special on the phone. When you start the phone, it will ask for your google account info, and once you enter that it will automatically sync all your google contacts with your phone and keep them current.

You can import contact files from other contact managers into the Google contact interface and have all your contacts in one place, plus auto synced with your phone. It works swell :)

A T-Mobile G1 is a very linux-friendly phone, it runs it's own version (Android) of Linux. The Asus R2H runs Windows XP by default, but a guide at http://www.xs4all.nl/~sozonko/asus_r2h_howto/ tells you how to install Linux on it. Hope I helped.

Sorry, I replied to the wrong question. That should have been:

A T-Mobile G1 is a very linux-friendly phone, it runs it's own version (Android) of Linux. You can use a service called Funambol to sync your contacts. The list of supported devices is at http://www.funambol.com/solutions/devices.php, and an unofficial (I think) Android client is available at https://android-client.forge.funambol.org/. Sorry for replying to the wrong question earlier.
