this is a common problem. after synching with a PDA or phone it will duplicate items in your contact or calendar folder.
Here's the trick to resolve this:
go to your contact folder, click on view, select a view (or create on) that is a table and not address cards.
right click on one of the title columns and select 'Field Chooser'
From the table that opens first select in the drop down box 'All Contact fields'. then from the list, select Created and drag into your view.
You now have an extra column that gives the time the entries where created. Sort them on this column (by clicking on it). then select all items that were created upon your 'fatal' sync. and delete them...
you can either hit delete or shift+delete, depening on whether you want them in the recyclebin or not.
