Default Sync contacts with Outlook on my PC

I am moving from Blackberry to galaxy S2. All my contacts and events are backed up / synced to outlook express on my PC. Doing sync either way with BB desk top manager is a breath.
Can I do the same without going to / passing through any gmail account ?
Is there a 2rd party apps that does that easily ?

Thanks a lot

As far as I know... No, it looks like it's done in purpose.

Microsoft, Apple and RIM were great companies but now it's changing, it's the Google era... but this is my opinion.

I use this on a daily basis to sync my phone to my Outlook Contacts and Calendar, amongst other things...

I have always used Samsung Kies to do this, since day one.

Very simple set-up, and Kies automatically syncs and updates my Outlook Contacts and Outlook Calendar every time I connect my phone.

Very reliable, and I have never had any problems.

Hi there. I also want to sync and avoid Google servers. I use Companion Link which is at www.companionlink.com. Check it out. It costs but it works well.
