Anything you want, if you install an appropriate sync provider in Android 2.1
or newer. There is at least one commercial implementation of this, although
not focused on Linux at all.
So, you could either write some FOSS code to implement a sync provider for the
desktop, find one that someone else wrote, or ...

... just sync with something in the cloud, like Google, Facebook, MySpace,
and perhaps soon Twitter.
 IIRC, they have a contact provider or something, but I didn't really
check since I don't use this service myself.
