Well Christmas has come and gone and the new year is literally just days away. In 2010 the CrackBerry theme roundup brought you over 250 themes, and we intend to keep it up in 2011! We can't do it without you guys though, so keep sending in tips for themes you would like to see showcased. Developers, keep developing! Hopefully the new year will see some exciting releases from RIM, and with those releases, themes for devices that as of yet have none. I know my fingers are crossed! Have a safe and happy New Year's everyone!

The feel of BlackBerry 6 is still there, but everything is customized, from the font to the battery, signal, and wifi meters. The icons are well suited to the theme, and the silver and blue colors throughout really give it a polished feel.
