Coming from a BB Tour myself, I sat down and started entering contacts into my phone. After about 10 of 122, I thought it was crazy as I was still learning how to adjust to Droids keyboard. I clicked on my contacts and there were people there that I hadnt entered that were only in my gmail account. Then it dawned on me. I went to my computer, logged into my gmail account and just started adding contacts with phone numbers only. I can type 75 words a minute so it only took 5 minutes to enter everyone. When I was done, I picked up my phone and Gmail had sync'ed them all to my phone. It was heaven!

There are a number of options. If you synced with Outlook you can export from Outlook and import into gmail. Desktop Manager should allow you to export to CSV using the ASCII importer/exporter.
Mail might be tricky. I don't know of a good way of transferring mail from one device to the other.

Ther are some (PC) apps available that will extract info from your BB backup file in text or CSV form. Some are completely free and others have free trials. The will let you extract any save emails, too. The one I used also extracted sms messages.

I used some blackberry app to dump the notes to SD card and then manually import them into my droid. I use GDocs w/ sync which syncs to google docs. It was painful but it was the only method. I forgot them name of the app. I'll have to find my 8830 and find out the name of the app. But there was no conversion program available to do such a thing unfortunately.
