    There is no included software for synchronizing with Mac OS X.

    ...but you can use doubleTwist to synchronize music, pictures and movies.

    For contacts, I'd rather sync Address Book with Google, and the let Google sync the contacts to your phone.

    If you're on Snow Leopard I believe you can do some syncing through iCal and AddressBook to Google; I've not tried this myself though. Personally I bought Spanning Sync on a lifetime licence, set it up and just ignore it (only issues I've had have been syncs failing when Spanning Sync's publishers took their servers down for maintenance). No problems once past the initial sync - do backup your addresses and calendar before syncing though (just in case).

    I also use Sailing Media Sync (paid, although there is a free version) for sync of iTunes playlists and music to the phone.

    I haven't tried this myself, but does OSX recognize the device correctly via USB?

    It recognises phone as an 'android phone', and the memory card once it's mounted through USB using the phone 'mount card' option.
