First up this week is another delightful design from popular developer BB Freaks. Though it may be getting colder in my part of the country it is nice to have a refreshing and colorful theme on my display to remind me of warmer times. Filled with Earth tones, colors, icons and backgrounds, you can't help but be amazed by the level of detail. It's bright, lively, and certainly brings out the best in your display. BB Freaks never fails to deliver a solid offering that is compatible with all OS 6 and 7 devices. As part of the BlackBerry Autumn promotion currently going on in select countries, this theme is on sale for only $0.99 for a limited time.
If you love cars or racing and want a little extra juice on your device then you should try this eye-popping theme on for size. This unique and stylish design offers semi-transparent menus, striking red and black hues, their custom BlackBerry 10 icon set, custom top banner, battery and signal meters, and distinctive wallpapers. It gives your compatible BlackBerry an entirely new look and feel all owing to the fact that it is clean and smooth. It supports BlackBerry 9220, 9300/10/15/20/30/50/60/70/80, 9620/50, 9700/20/80/88/90, 9800/10/50/60, and 9900/30/81 and can be purchased for $0.99.
On the prowl for something completely out of the ordinary for your handset? That is where this technologically creative theme comes into play. Skinned from top to bottom, just about every element on the homescreen has been modified in one form or another to give you an amazing theme. From the custom battery and signal meters on the bottom to the placement of the date/time and clock and the inventive top banner it all comes together in a balanced and beautiful way. Not to mention the blue icon set and eye-popping wallpapers that fill out the rest of the science fiction design. While icons in folders may be hidden due to the complexity of the customization, it is $0.99 and supports BlackBerry 8900/10/80, 9000, 9100/05, 9220, 9300/10/15/20/30/50/60/70/80, 9500/20/30/50, 9620/30/50/70, 9700/20/80/88/90, 9800/10/50/60, and 9900/30/81 running OS 5 and higher.
Now that December is finally here the time has come to focus on more important things, the Holidays! Fortronic let us know about their latest theme which is all about getting into the Christmas spirit. There are holiday themed wallpapers, colors, and icons, animated icons, custom designed dialog boxes, menus, and popups, and landscape support for Torch devices.

If you fancy replica themes and are looking to dress up your device as another operating system there is one sent in by BerryZA. It may be simple with only minor changes to the stock UI but but it still retains the BlackBerry experience we all know and love even with the metro icons. For those who want to change things up a bit from stock be sure to check this out in BlackBerry App World for $1.99. Metro is compatible with 9220, 9310/20/50/60/70, 9720/90, 9810/50/60, and 9900/30/81 running OS 7.x.
