There's speculation on the 2-way read/unread feature as some have said its only one-way. One thing you will lose is instant push email using google's IMAP in the BIS.

What I've been doing is setup my account for IMAP and use Outlook-IMAP instead of the web interface. I kept BIS as is so I get instant email.

YMMV

There is no benefit with regard to Gmail IMAP and your BlackBerry.

However, you can now use Outlook to synchronize your received messages as well as sent messages so you don't need to CC or Bcc yourself anymore for those messages you need copies of.
