    If I get an Android phone, such as HTC Hero or Nexus One (if it comes to Sprint), is the default "Contact" app "Gmail Contacts"? That is, will it automatically sync my Gmail Contacts to the phone's internal "Contacts" database?

    I like the idea of pushing everything to Gmail (including all my contact info) and I'd love it if the Android phone would sync with all the contacts in Gmail. That way, I will always be backed up and never have to worry about loosing the 500 or so contacts I've built up over the years on my current Palm Treo phone.

    If I don't like the built-in Contact app on whatever Android phone I end up with, are there better apps for sale that will also sync with Gmail's contacts?

    Thanks,
    Vesbon

    Yes the built in contacts app push sync's with your gmail account. You can even use multiple accounts.
