BlackBerry 10 makes the email portion of the setup easy for Gmail accounts and has most of the info filled in already, so you'll just need to enter the following:

  • Description: Whatever you want to call the account
  • Display Name: Your name
  • Username: Your Gmail address
  • Email Address: Your Gmail address

On the bottom of the page you can choose your sync settings for email as well.
