hey there - im thinking about doing the same thing and moving from the 8703e to the new pearl.
as far as transferring contacts, etc., if you have BES then it automatically will do that when you set up BES on the new blackberry. if you have BIS, then you're going to have to manually transfer it. i usually every week or two transfer all my items to my home computer's outlook (which i never use, just have it there for these sync purposes). if you transfer your stuff to outlook (others programs may work, this is the only one im familiar with) then they will permanently be there, and then when you get the new BB you can use desktop manager to just upload them up to your new one! shouldn't be too difficult.
i don't use your other programs so im not sure, but my guess is you will have to reinstall them (OTA) on your new BB - usually you cannot transfer programs to the best of my knowledge.
hope that helps!
