Pop should be good. There's a thread for GMail IMAP on BlackBerrys somewhere. You might want to read more info on that, too.

The comparison of the two is actually much more complex than that.

GMail POP:
-Instant Push email
-No Read/Unread Reconciliation (meaning if you read an email on your BlackBerry, it will still show as unread when you check your GMail on your computer).

GMail IMAP:
-Not instant receiving of emails (new messages are checked typically every 15 minutes or so)
-Read/Unread reconciliation (this is actually instant).

As ricpac said, there is are threads about the Gmail POP vs IMAP situation if you want to look more into it.
