Even my first thought was rsync, but on a second thounght I changed my
mind. :)

The problem begins when you change things on botth sides. For example
changing a contact on my pc and my phone without rsyncing in the
meantime. A valid scenario I won't miss.

SyncML should be the better choice here. With OpenMoko we have the
chance to get that running without getting frustated of the broken
phone software. We can change this. :)

So for contacts I would vote for SyncML.

Speaking about your data files on flash and microSD rsync or unison
could be an idea again. Or just copy the stuff around as on your
normal host system.

E-mail should be fine with imaps. I have a feeling we will see some
bits of tinymail for it.
