Personally I would go with BES; because BPS doesn't currently support Rich Text Email or Remote Email lookup; both features I use heavily. From your requirements listed however, both servers support all functionality.
That said, for the size of your environmen BPS will work fine and you can put it on the Exchange 2003 Server. Again, I wouldn't personally put it on the Exchange server as I'm against multifunction servers; but it'll work and it'll be supportable. If you decide to go to the BES route, BES is not supported on the Exchange Server; it needs its own box.

thanks for your reply.
i assume from your reply that BPS can handle wireless synchronization of address books, subfolders in Outlook etc.. just like we can do using windows mobile PDAs with exchange?
btw, what are the difference between BPS and BES then?

Yes, it can do all the basic things you've listed.
User limits; some application integration limitation are the differences ... see: BES / BPS Comparison for details
