You will love it!
mobile GMail isn't great, but its passable. The Google Calendar Sync is quite good, at least for what I've used it for so far. You can have it sync any of your calendars and it seems to sync changes back and forth perfectly.
The BB browser is quite good though. Overall I agree that you'll love it. I just got mine after having a Motorola E815 for just over 2 years.
