I know a lot of the news today has been focused around the BlackBerry PlayBook (and yes there is a ton more coming), but that won’t stop us from non-PlayBook news as well. It appears the first official release of OS 6.0 for the BlackBerry Bold 9700 is here. Vodafone Essar has just released OS 22.214.171.1240 for the Bold 9700 as an official release. This means Vodafone Essar (and pretty much anyone else with a Bold 9700) can now officially enjoy some BlackBerry 6 love. We don’t expect this to be the only official OS 6.0 release for the Bold 9700 this month, so stay tuned for those. Meanwhile if you won’t to grab yourself a copy of the new Bold 9700 OS follow the link below and install it — Just don’t forget to remove the vendor.xml file to install it on non Vodafone Essar handsets.
