After what was supposed to be a May 13th release but was “delayed until further notice”… Thanks to a few of our Bell tipsters who let us know that the BlackBerry Pearl 9100 is finally being released on June 4th.

In the internal document we received it states that “Bell is launching the BlackBerry Pearl 9100 which operates on the HSPA network and will replace its CDMA predecessor, the BlackBerry Pearl 8130”.

No conformation but you could also bet that Virgin will release the Pearl 9100 on the 4th also. Regarding pricing, here’s what the doc states but this will probably come in at $49.95 on a 3-year, outright price of $329.95.

    Just got one freshly received Blackberry Pear 9100 from Bell (near Montreal). Probably one of the first to got the hand on one.

    The detailed price is 49.95$ (obviously with a 3 years contract).

    The phone is pretty neat, small and very easy to manipulate with one hand. Just got to be familiar with sure type technology, but for a Bold 9700 user is was still quite easy to use.
