Hi All,

I'm an Android newbie and soon plan to purchase my first Android phone (probably with Android 4 ICS). I'm using 12.04.

What are the best practices for connecting an Android phone with Ubuntu? I did some googling and thread searching on this and didn't find much details.

My plan is to move all my Outlook contacts and tasks into Android. I don't need to sync them. I plan to do a daily backup of my Android phone and save that file into Ubuntu. I plan to only manage contacts and tasks on the Android, not in Ubuntu. I don't need or plan to sync my gmail contacts with Android.
