Is it possible to setup my webscripts (PHP or Perl) to detect a device's OS version (not module number), so that it can automatically decide which software version to serve using OTA?

If their Browser Identification is set as Blackberry then the user agent string is usually formatted like this:

BlackBerry8900/4.6.1.114 Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.1 VendorID/100
BlackBerry9000/4.6.0.234 Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.1 VendorID/107
BlackBerry9530/4.7.0.103 Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.1 VendorID/105

but they could have their Browser Identification set to Firefox or Internet Explorer and then it will not contain any Blackberry specific info.

For the Blackberry user agents above, I use this in PHP:

if (preg_match('/BlackBerry[^\/]*\/(.+) Profile/i', $agent, $matches))
and then for the above user agents
$matches[1] = 4.6.1.114
$matches[1] = 4.6.0.234
$matches[1] = 4.7.0.103
