That's the beauty of Android. You don't need a separate piece of software for your PC. It's designed from the ground up to do everything within the Cloud.

  • manage my phone files (audio/photo),

Connect via USB, turn on USB drive mode, and use Windows Explorer to manage your files.

  • calendar (ms outlook independent)

Sync over-the-air (OTA) to Google Calendar.

  • add/remove applications,

You do that right on the device or in the Google Play Store.

  • access/edit/merge/remove contacts (ms outlook independent)
