Hans let me know that Claro Puerto Rico has release a multi-language version of OS 126.96.36.1993 for the BlackBerry Bold 9700. This might not seem like a big deal to most of us in the US since the regular versions of the OS have English, Spanish, & French support but for Europeans the multi-language versions are key. They add languages like Dutch, Portuguese, Russian, and Turkish.
You can find the download at this link on BlackBerry.com
