Want some of those fancy features in BlackBerry OS 6 like the new and improved web browser, updated media player, customizable home screen, and social networking integration, but don’t feel like buying a new phone to get the new OS? If you’re a Verizon customer with a BlackBerry Bold 9650 or Curve 3G, you’re in luck.

Verizon is rolling out software updates for both phones tonight. BlackBerry OS 6.0 should be available for download starting at 8:00 PM Eastern for each phone. You should get a notification on your device when the software update is avialable, but you may also be able to grab the latest Bold 9650 and Curve 3G updates from the Verizon web site.
