We were tipped off (err..notified by a PR agency) this morning that Alltel Wireless is now offering the BlackBerry Pearl 8130 in Red. The 8130 is selling for $149.99 after a $100 mail-in-rebate to new customers of Alltel who sign-up for a 2-year service agreement. The same price is also available to existing customers with qualifying rate plans.
This is not suprising news with Valentine's Day just around the corner. I wonder if Alltel will also release a pink 8130 in time for Valentine's Day like Verizon did?
The release of the red 8130 was part of a larger announcement from Alltel. At the same time they also launched the LG Scoop (in 3 colors) and the Samsung Muse.
