Arsenalsocal is well known in the forums for his FREE user-friendly BlackBerry themes. They are easy to use and appeal to a wide rage of theme lovers. Today we wanted to bring you His & Hers by arsenalsocal. He's created two themes, one in pink and one in blue, both with white icons and accents of color throughout. There are different versions of His & Hers, so if you like hidden docks, weather, or just a zen layout, you're in luck. Also, he has gone ahead and made not only the OS 5.0 version for 89/96/9700 devices, but he has added BB6 compatible versions as well. Check these out, and if you download the theme leave arsenal a comment and let him know you appreciate his work.

Impakt Pink JP Designs

Impakt Bounce Back Pink by JP Designs 

Based off feedback from his original Impakt series, JP Designs has one for the ladies, with Impakt Pink. This theme is incredibly fast and user friendly giving you a professional theme capable of going from the board room to the living room. All icons are user defined and show notifications. The home screen even shows 3rd party icons as being skinned in the tabs. Depending on your device, your home screen holds 22 - 26 user defined icons, including two weather slots. Custom meters for battery and signal as well as some key hot spots round out this theme. Girls you're really going to like the look of Impakt; the pink really contrasts nicely with the black floral backgrounds throughout.
Impakt Pink is available for $3.99 and is compatible with 96/97xx and 9800 on BB6 only. If you like the Impakt design, JP Designs has others available in different colors and a wider range of devices. You can check those out at the 2nd link below.

Hello Kitty Oh L'amour by iHeartMyBB

Hello Kitty Oh L'amour by iHeartMyBB

Oooh la la!! Hello Kitty Oh L'amour by iHeartMyBB is just for you girls that can't get enough HK on your BlackBerry. This theme features six mini icons on the home screen, and landscape mode has 4 full size customizable icons. And these aren't just regular icons, they're Hello Kitty icons in black and pink!  Custom wallpapers are included, but the banners are static, making this theme wallpaper friendly if you decide to make a change. Fonts are defaulted to allow for easy integration with your favorite font changing applications, except they are pink even in BBM and SMS. One of the coolest details of this theme is the alpha/word clock that mimics some of the popular Android apps.

Hello Kitty Oh L'amour is available for $4.99 and is only compatible with the BlackBerry Torch.

PlayBook Inside by Walker Themes

PlayBook Inside by Walker Themes

We let you know about PlayBook Inside by Walker Themes last month in the theme roundup. is a new take on the framed themes available out there, but instead of your picture or wallpaper going in a frame, it appears inside a PlayBook on your home screen! Everyone likes to have options, and this theme offers you some. The home screen has multiple views, so you can choose to have the PlayBook showing with your image and a dock, or without the dock. You can also remove the PlayBook image, and just have your wallpaper with or without the dock. The font has a cool futuristic look and you can hide the weather slot if that's not your thing.

PB Inside is available on sale now for $3.99 (regularly $5.99) and is compatible with most devices on OS 5.0 - 6.0.

For more information/screenshots and to purchase PlayBook Inside

Walker Themes is just as anxious as the rest of us to get their hands on a PlayBook, so to help ease the anxiousness until its release they want to pass on 30 free copies of PlayBook Inside. To enter just leave a comment below. Contest ends this Sunday at Midnight PST. One entry per person please.

BlackBerry theme roundup for March 21, 2011 - Win 1 of 30 copies of PlayBook Inside by Walker Themes!


This is ridiculous... this theme is for the Bold 9650, Bold 9700, Bold 9780, Curve 8520, Curve 8530, Curve 8900, Curve 8910, Curve 8930, Curve 8980, Curve 9300 3G, Curve 9330 3G, Pearl 9100 3G, Pearl 9105 3G, Storm 9500, Storm 9530/9530T, Storm2 9550/9520, Style 9670, Torch 9800, Tour 9630, but not the Bold 9000. seriously what the hell? Is one of the great devices for Blackberry being left in the dust? I think so...

It's not so ridiculous, it is gettinng pretty old. And although the form factor is one of the greatest, it is also rather dated. Developers by nature want to work ahead and do things for the current and newest devices. The 9000 is how many years old now?? Don't expect a ton of support for your device anymore, sorry man. Especially for themes, that's just gonna be mostly 9000 owners supporting each other. At least most apps will still be compatible, for now...

This would be perfect for my BOLD 9650, and when I get my 4G playbook! Awesome!!! Thanks in advance!

Pick the first 30 Please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! R-walker and CrackBerry Rocks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Great theme! Pick me!!

No wonder the biggest blackberry site and forum, Crackberry, always give surprises. And this time 30 free copies Playbook Inside Theme. AWESOME!! I hope I can be one of those freebies. :)

I've been interested in this theme for a while and to be honest, I'm not even sure why I haven't gotten it yet! But being that there is a contest, I obviously had to enter for my chance to win a copy! :D

That is a sweet looking theme. I really like the idea of the wallpaper going into a frame. Great idea.

I want to win the Playbook theme since I am dying to get my hands on the Playbook - this would be a much welcomed tease! :)

Awesome looking theme. I think it would be really cool to win a copy of that for my Torch, especially considering the fact that I haven't won anything on here yet.

as a new blackberry torch user i wud love for this to be my first theme :) please send one my way!

The Greenluck theme would look great on my Torch 9800, or the hello kitty or Impakt Bounce Back Pink would look great on my wifes Curve

To The Powers That Be,

I would love to get my hands on the new Playbook - not too much cash on hand so if you can help a brother out it would be greatly appreciated !!!
