The carrier is offering the update to the new Blackberry Bold 9700, the update would be installing the new OS 5.0.0.586, the update is not necessarily long overdue as the phone has just recently released. However the update is reported to strengthen the phones over all integrity, and provide some other small improvements to the phones total functionality.
