    If you have a Gmail account, that probably might be the best way for contacts and calendar. At least that's how I take care of syncing those two with my Nexus S.

    Apple Mail, iCal, and the Address Book will sync with google accounts. I have mine set up to do that. I can use the google web pages or the Apple apps. I also have a Palm WebOS phone and sync it with my google account. So my MBP, phone and goole accounts all have the same data synced. Works fine.

    I sync the contacts and calendars to both native apps on Lion and to Google.

    As for how, System Preferences => Mail, Contacts & Calendar => Add Account => Gmail => type in your details => and there will be a window asking which features you want to use. Voila. With this set, what you change on Gmail will reflect on your phone and native apps. Same can be said if you make changes on native apps or the phone.

    my goal:

    to confirm android <--> native mac apps (lion)

    what we need to do:

    android <--> google cloud <--> lion
