Method of DUAL sync for Android like with WindowsMobile? 1way&full sync

I have a very large database of 5000+ contacts in Outlook.
I want to maintain this database and add my new Android contacts to this database.
However, this database is too large to keep on my phone.
So, I want to run two separate syncs so I can maintain two separate databases.

#1. A one way sync that ads all of my android contacts to my existing master database in Outlook that will NEVER delete any information from the master Outlook database on my laptop hard drive.

#2. A full sync that will that will allow me to backup and sync my phones database which of about 100 frequently used contacts.

I have just purchased both a new EVO Shift 4G phone (added to my collection ofevery Windows/HTC phone released on Sprint) and a new Windows 7 laptop (added to my Windows XP desktop).
So, I believe I am going to have to get Outlook for Windows 7 onto my newlaptop. (Even though I have MANY Outlook licenses that I have PAID for with all of my Windows Mobile Phone purchases. 6700, Mogul, TP1, TP2)

As an example, I used the process below to accomplish what I am looking todo with Android with all of my previous HTC/Windows phones, the Outlooksoftware that came with those phones, and my Windows XP laptop.

#1. I would save a PIM file on my SD card with about 100 contacts and name it by the current calendar date.

#2. I would then do a FULL sync with Activesync between my desktop Outlookdatabase (my master database) and the phone. Unfortunately, that would put all5000+ contacts in my phone.

#3. I would then restore the PIM file from the SD card with the 100 or sofrequently used contacts.

This method above would allow me to keep a master database AND a phonedatabase and I would really like to do the same with Android.

Thanks for reading this.
I hope I relayed what I am looking to accomplish apologize if I rambled on.
Thanks in advance for any help.
