How to get Mac contacts under 10.8 onto Windows Phone 7 phone

I recently bought my wife a Lumia 610. I have run the Windows Phone 7 Connector, but it doesn't seem to have a way to sync OS X contacts. All the advice on line requires synching the contacts with google, but that functionality seems to have been dropped with OSX 10.8.

Any other approaches?

You can still sync your contacts with Google.

Steps you need to do:
1. All the contacts needs to be located on your local mac (my local mac needs to be the default account).
2. Click on the Contacts menu ==> Preferences
3. Go to "Accounts"
4. Click on "on my mac"
5. Check the box "synchronize with google"
6. Fill in your username + password
7. Right on top you see the well known sync icon.
8. Click on it.
9. Go to google and you see that your contacts are there
10. Synchronize the Win Phone 7 with Google and your contacts are on your phone.

Thanks, this steered me in the right direction. I don't know how I missed that before.
