You can sync calendar, contacts, tasks and memos with this setup.
Got it. Sounds like Google Sync is the best option.

Now, after browsing around a bit on the forum, it looks like there's also a "Gmail application" that google offers. Is that completely separate from Google Sync? Right now I have my gmail account activated on my BB through BIS (in addition to BES). I would probably recommend this setup, using the BB native email system, as opposed to a separate Gmail application.

Are there any issues with getting mail through BIS (as opposed to Gmail app), and using Google Sync for contacts / calendar? And is there any reason why someone would want to use the Gmail app instead of going the normal BIS/gmail route?
