Perhaps look into opensync, I have never used it but it looks like it
might be what you are looking for.

I use the Zindus plugin for Mozilla Thunderbird, it syncs my Thunderbird
contacts with Google.

I have a 2nd Gen Ipod nano that works with Amarok.  I copy music to and
from it without issue, as long as it never sees iTunes (iTunes will
remove all music added by Amarok).

The new nanos, touch, and classic are not supported, though I imagine
they will be sooner or later.  My next mp3 player will not be one from
Apple, I am tired of this dance.
