Mac and T-Mobile G1 (Google Android) phone syncing

Todd’s article on getting the new T-Mobile G1 (Google Android) to sync with a Mac…

My T-Mobile G1 phone based on Google’s Android platform arrived on Monday. It was a big change for me because I’ve been using Windows Mobile based smartphones since 2002 when I started with the very first T-Mobile Pocket PC Phone Edition. Since Android phones sync directly with Google Calendar and Gmail Contacts, this also meant switching away from Microsoft Outlook on my old Windows XP PC. Given this big change, I thought it might be interesting to see if I could sync Contacts and Calendar with my Mac. One of my goals was to only use tools provided by Apple or Google. I wanted to avoid trust issues involved with using third party web services that worked as an intemediatry between the Google web services and my Mac.
