You can do this easily with no additional software. Just follow the steps outlined here on Google's site. I use this to sync my Google Contacts and Calendar. It works very well! Edit: Please note that this currently only works for Contacts and Calendar and does not sync your email. You will have to set up your email separately.

Google takeout should let you do it, as would the contacts page under gmail. A new phone under the same account would sync it too. In addition, android device manager should let you locate or wipe your phone remotely

Have you checked Google contacts? http://contacts.google.com/ If you synced to google, you should see your contacts there. There's no guarantee they're all there. Sometimes you end up adding to the phone, not to Google. But you should see some. You can also download a few ways, including spreadsheet, or vCards.

There's an option in iTunes to do this. It's where you set contacts, you can select Google contacts, and provide your login/password. This works fine on a PC, most likely Mac too. It did throw in a ton of junk contacts for me too though; lots of one-off addresses that I used once showed up. Took a while to delete all that, but now it works great.

Honestly, just hang in there until Snow Leopard, and its Exchange support for Address Book. Until then, just try to only add information through http://google.com/contacts, and perform a manual sync to pull the updates back to address book. And make sure you regularly backup your address book and your google contacts, I've had one or the other blown away ...
