Are there any phones/PDAs which can synchronise with Ubuntu nowadays?

Some possibilities depending on your preferences....

Research some appropriate phones that work with the SyncML standard...
those *should* be able to sync with Evolution or another client with a
syncML backend...

Get an Android based phone with a google account and let that all sync
up... I know you did say you don't want a 'cloud' server but it works
very well for me ;)

Fire up synaptic and search for phone sync and see what apps it
suggests and what they are compatible with maybe?
