I'd agree with the hosted part. If you really want to roll your own, I'd personally go nginx and php5-fpm with mysql backend rather than apache. Its much more likely to perform well with a 2500 user phpbb than apache.
My prediction is that they release a phone that runs on android, but has BES services installed on top. Who knows, they may even simply dwindle down to a "software company" that only provides a 'blackberry services' suite that installs on top of androids and iphones.
