IMAP is unnecessary. Have you tried Gmail's "recent" mode? It's made to handle this per Gmail's instructions at:

How should I use POP on mobile or multiple devices?

If you sign in to Gmail using your Blackberry, you're signed in to recent mode automatically. For all other POP clients, replace '' in your POP client settings with ''.
I do this on Microsoft Entourage on my Mac and Mozilla Thunderbird on my laptop PC, and I can happily check email from either programs, the Gmail web site, or my BlackBerry and it all works fine with everything seeing all emails without issue.
