Don't get too over excited though because, as the "7.1" name suggests, this is a relatively low-key upgrade.
The update does bring various software improvements however, and it also signals the arrival of the Wi-Fi hotspot feature, allowing you to use your BlackBerry as a wireless internet hotspot for up to five devices to connect to.
For all of you who love BBM then 7.1 will deliver a more personalised experience including animated avatars and new colour chat bubbles – exciting stuff.
There's also updates to BlackBerry Traffic and BlackBerry Travel, as well as improvements to the search function.
If you own a Curve 9360 or Curve 9380 the update will unlock the FM radio app which apparently has been hiding in your phone the whole time.
