Hey everyone, welcome back to the BlackBerry Theme Roundup! We are trying something a little different with the theme roundups starting this week. Instead of a random selection of themes, we picked a topic and found themes related to that topic. This week, we chose OS Replica themes. Next week we will be on the lookout for themes for Mother's Day, so if you have developed one you want to share or be featured in the contest, or if you just see a really good one out there somewhere, send it in! Send an email to themeroundup[at]crackberry.com for consideration. In the meantime, check out this week's picks, and enter to win a free copy of C point 1 by C_86 Themes! Contest details after the break.

Windows 7 Professional by TDM Designs

Win 7 Professional by TDM Designs

Are you a diehard Windows fan? Win 7 Professional may be the theme for you. It is one of the most realistic Windows 7 themes out there. The start menu has a total of 14 icons, 6 of them are user defined. Also the start bar contains the text of the first icon, which is perfect for weather or OCD apps. By clicking/tapping the explorer icon in the start bar it brings up a window with 8 user defined icons. This also has text for the first icon. A really cool feature are the widgets on the right side of the screen: clock, media, my notes, and the first icon on app screen. The widgets are hide-able if you don't want to see them. There are two versions available; with and without hidden today. Win 7 Professional is available for $3.99 and is compatible with 89xx, 95xx, 9630/50, 97xx, and 9800.

C point 1 by C_86 Themes

C point 1 by C_86 Themes

BlackBerry OS 6.1 was leaked last week, though for devices no one really has. Luckily, icons were extracted from the OS and are now available for theme makers to use. A lot of developers have stuck to the BB6 UI and plugged in the 6.1 icons (which makes sense as a lot of people enjoy the BB6 experience). C_86 Themes took the same path, but also added in some of his own personal touches such as a thinner banner for wallpaper visibility, custom meters, and more. C point 1 is available for just $1.49 and is compatible with BlackBerry 91xx, 93xx, 96xx, 97xx. and 9800 on BB6.

For more information/screenshots and to purchase C point 1

Contest: C_86 has shared 25 copies of C point 1 with us for this week's contest! To enter to win a free copy, leave a comment below telling us what you want most out of OS 6.1 when it releases. Be sure you have one of the devices listed above, and only enter once please. Contest ends this Sunday at Midnight PST.

BlackBerry theme roundup for April 6, 2011 - 25 copies of C point 1 to give away!

I am so excited for customizable trays. No more favourites / downloads / frequent! Would love a copy of the theme. :)

a free copy of C point 1 by C_86!

one thing id love about OS 6.1 would be to have a more fluid UI for better navigation and good RAM and power utilization. Aside from the fact the I am ok with OS 6, a few tweaks wont hurt that can help improve the phone's performance well. Also, OS 6.1 should be released for 9780 like seriously

I like the looks of the OS themed themes... I like all the themes that get recognized on the main page of crackberry and even better if I can win some.

What i'm looking forward to most with os 6.1 which I don't think will be a feature but one can hope ;) is the ability to EXCLUDE certain files from media libraries. Tired of my audio books getting thrown in when I'm listening to my music library on shuffle.

BB Bold 9780

What I would like to see in 6.1 is a better built in media player, one that supports album artists sorting, not just artists,A complete re-overhaul of the pic library,Better battery utilization, and improved use of the ram for a faster phone all around, maybe even a flash-based browser for better internet browsing

Torch 9800

i want OS 6.1 to be close to bug free,its new,so some bugs are to be expected,but as long as there aren't to many,i will be happy

I realy want to try the windows 7 and the C point theme
Wanna give my 9700 (OS6) a whole new look and feel!.

i hope crackberry picks me out to win a copy of this wonderfull theme

(never won anything on crackberry hope this time i will :P)

Want to see android apps to be available after 6.1 update. Currently the blackberry apps pool need enhancement.

One copy of the theme for singapore 9800 plz.

Out of OS 6.1, the new feature I want the most is better and better Web Browser! BlackBerry, I think you can do it on 6.1 this time, and the next, and the next...

Looks interesting. I hope the final 6.1 also has options to remove the search bar and shrink / remove the top banner. 6 obscures the wallpaper so much on 9700/9780.
.
#NOTE: I see at least 3 people hoping to win the Win7 theme - I wish they would actually read properly, it is not in the competition. Can see it being really unfair if they are the winners as they are not wanting CPoint (the prize).

Thanks for the contest. This theme looks great. I'd like to see more fluidity and less lag with 6.1 and like customizable trays.

I'd love to have a better Media Player in 6.1! And, of course, general improvements to the OS (my torch gets laggy sometimes, would love to have more fluid transitions, etc.)
Hope I win that sweet theme because i'm loving the new icons :D

I would love to see more options for BBM and added flash support, that would be the ultimate. Would love to see the Win 7 theme on my 9800. Combined with my laptop i could have the ultimate Win 7 devices.
Thanks CB and C_86 for bring this great contest to us.

I would like to see the liquid graphics on 6.1 really bring this OS to at least look modern. I have no beef with the functionality of OS6 though.

Pick me!

What I want out of 6.1 when it is released is just smoother operation. When I do Batt Pulls sometimes certain net_rim_bb_* apps do not work properly and has to be closed.

I would love one please. I like the fact the banner is thinner to see more wallpaper and the crispness of the icons.

i just love the fact that the trays are customizable for what i want to see and not what they want me to see.
bold 9650, hooray!

I would love shorter boot times, over-the-air OS updates that are seemless and no reboot after install. Wishful thinking.

I would like OS 6.1 to be able to run on my 9700! That would be the best feature if you'd ask me.

But until then C point 1 will do:D.

C point looks really nice
Hoping the new 6.1 would have a better web browser and music player. I'm glad RIM is finally introducing hotspot

BB Torch

Could you pick me as I get overlooked for everything! Is it the "UK" in my name?

Anyway the feature I would like to see is some more in depth customisation options. For example being able to clear up the home screen a lot more and changing the led notification light for different incoming alerts.

I'm really looking forward to being able to customize my tabs on the stock OS 6 theme. I also want to be able to have the full BBM 6. Especially since by the time its released I'll have my very own PlayBook!

I'd like to have the option to customise the tray icons and a default theme with the calender showing on the today home screen

Acho tão legal o BB OS 6.0 que não tenho vontade alguma de mudar o visual do sistema.

-----------------------------------------

I think so cool BB OS 6.0 that I have no desire whatsoever to change the look of the system.

pick me =] its always cool to have a different look to the bb!!! wouldnt mind switchin my theme from the given theme =]

What I want most out of 6.1 when it releases is the ability for it to run on my Storm 2. I don't see that happening, though, so I will just look on with envy while I try and score a cool 6.1 looking theme. :)

i'd like the 6.1 homescreen layout to be better able to show the wallpaper, and an option to show smaller (shrunk?) icons.

I would love to win this theme =D, Things that I would want to see in OS 6.1 are: a more fluid UI for better navigation and good RAM and power utilization (also of course improved battery health). =D

Love the new icons of 6.1 and I wish they would tune the OS to have fewer memory leaks and a native app for cleaning the RAM so i dont have to keep doing a reset all the time.

it would be awesome to win this theme for my Curve 9300!

I'd love the c point 1 theme.

What I'd like out of OS 6.1 is a more fluid UI that responds better and possibly a few feature add-ons

I love os6 themes and tray style, but this one looks even great with os6.1 icon. Nice to have this theme on my curve 3G.

Wow! Thank you for the contest!

I love the icons and the whole theme itself. Very 'back to basic' and I believe this is definitely a theme to go for!

a free copy of C point 1 by C_86!

the thing id like to see a improvement in OS 6.1 would be better optimization of the ram and power. I want to get more battery life out of my blackberry, and be able to open apps without giving me errors on low memory. To me os 6 is very solid design for the blackberry. Everyone likes it and the features it brings. just if it were to be more smoother from tray to tray transitions.

thanks!

what i want the most out of 6.1: - better media player, more customizable feature. Other than that, BB is the best :)
