Question BIS and Syncing Contacts & Calendar

Please Login to Remove!

This may be a dumb question so please excuse my ignorance. I have been a longtime BES user (have a Pearl and love it) and am planning to get my wife a Curve which she will be using with her Gmail account. I understand that through BIS she will be able to get her gmail pushed directly to the blackberry without having to run the old BB redirector.

What I don't understand is how her contacts and calendar will be synced? Does she need to sync the calendar and contacts via Outlook by physically plugging the BB into the computer w/ the USB cable? Is it possible to get wireless sync like on BES? Does it matter if she configures Outlook on the PC to pull down her Gmail? Can everything be integrated?

An explanation of how BIS actually works and integrates w/ the Desktop Manager software would be helpful.

Thanks in advance
