Need Opinions about hosted Exchange

We are a small company with about 8 administrators who use outlook on individual computers.  We do not have exchange but are entertaining a proposal to purchase a service for hosted exchange.

Are there opinions out there regarding pro's & cons of this system?

Our users are located in 2 offices, both accessing internet via aDSL service.  One user also uses Iphone, one blackberry and 2 use MS mobile.  It is critical that all of these are able to use exchange as well.  I understand that there is new software to allow the IPhone to connect but the blackberry must sync via desktop software.

I am wondering whether we are going to have a reliable and fast system with hosted Exchange.

Thanks!

By leaving out the Blackberry there won't be any problem in your actual Enviornment using a hosted MS Exchange Service.
Maybe the will be any service provider out there offering a hosted exchange solution supporting blackberry online sync.

You could solve the problem with Blackberry by getting a BES server, i.e. wireless sync no more desktop issues.

For Pros and Cons look at this, good information:

I understand the BES server costs $5,000 for the first 2 users.  Kind of pricey!

Any thoughts on the blackberry desktop software that allows the blackberry to sync (via internet) with the desktop?  This way bb can connect to exchange indirectly.
