We currently have a in-house EXCHANGE server with 50+ iPhones and want about 10 Blackberry phones with hosted "Blackberry" service.

Who do you recommend for just hosted "Blackberry" service
since we want to keep the in-house EXCHANGE server as-is ?

Nothing special, just want Blackberry
users to be able to get Exchange email
without having an in-house Blackberry server.

There isn't currently an option like that available. The two have to be relatively close in proximity. Blackberry is currently offering a cloud management that can be used with Office 365 or Microsoft Exchange Online, but not with on-premise Exchange servers.

Blackberry are in the final beta of testing something for on premise Blackberry servers.

However that will be for Blackberry 10 devices only. For legacy devices you are pretty much stuck with BES 5.x.

Considering legacy Blackberry devices are effectively Outlook clients so need full access to Exchange, I wouldn't even consider anything other than an in-house BES server. BES Express is free and can be run with the Blackberry devices on a BIS only plan.

Although Blackberry 10 devices can also be used with regular ActiveSync - no BES of any description required.
