Mobile (cell) phone for sync with google calendar without a phone data tariff?

Advice on a new phone please. Main criteria are (1) needing to be able to add calendar events while out and about and (2) being about to sync the phone calendar with Google Calendar when I get home.
Can it be done?

My old SonyEricsson P910i keeps going ditsy and failing to find any signal so I need to replace it. It's great for adding calendar events (handwriting recognition on its touchscreen) and then I can sync these with Outlook on my computer at home (though not Google Calendar as it's such an old version of Outlook).
Out of the millions of phones out there, there must be one where I can:
1. Add items to the phone's internal calendar (ie not into google calendar via web access on the phone, as I don't want to have to pay for this) when I'm out and about - hardware keyboard, onscreen keyboard, handwriting recognition all OK
2. Add items to google calendar whenever I'm at a computer
3. Sync the two via a USB cable (not via web access on the phone - see above) when I'm at my home computer and have things sync'ed in both directions.
Bonus points for a phone that's:
1. available on PAYG (I don't make a lot of calls) in the UK
2. Won't cost the earth
I don't mind which network it's on - I have no particular loyalty to my current PAYG provider.
