News has just come in that Virgin Media is to bring the BlackBerry Pearl 3G to its pay monthly handset range.

It all looks fairly standard fare with four contracts to choose from. The first two are based on a 24-month contract, giving a choice of either 600 or 800 minutes, unlimited texts and fair usage for web access - these cost £30 and £35 a month respectively.

The other two are for 18-month contracts, offering exactly the same minutes, texts and internet, but with the 600- and 800-minute offerings costing £35 and £40 respectively.

The BlackBerry Pearl 3G came out very well in our Pocket-lint full review, and struck us as a very good all-rounder. For a full run down of these tariffs and others on offer you can visit
