Rumor has it the BlackBerry 8130 will be gracing Canadian MVNO Virgin Mobile next month for free on a three-year contract, $CAN 299.95 on two years, $CAN 399.95 with three, and $CAN 449.95 with no strings attached. With August coming soon, and the Kickstart in the pipes, it’s expected that the BlackBerry Pearl will start working its way to the discount carriers. This is also Virgin Mobile Canada’s first BlackBerry, so congrats on getting that ‘berry popped.

Regardless, you can find more information on VIP’s GPS Curve and Pearl rates over here.
