BIS doesn't provide HTML email (yet), it doesn't provide access to labels, it doesn't offer threaded conversation view and it doesn't provide access to contacts.
My Google Apps account has the same contacts as my BB address book, but my personal contact list is not sync'd to my BB. The Gmail app provides the access that I want and keeps my address books separate.
I am not the OP obviously, but the BB leaves a LOT out when it comes to Gmail features.
