Theme Roundup

It's Monday again, and time for the weekly theme roundup. This week we have 2 very good looking free themes, as well as a contest for a brand new theme that just hit the store this morning. Hit the jump to read on.

Free Themes of the Week



Our 1st pick this week is from the forums. DroidSlide features a 16 icon sliding dock, as well as a hidden today area. When scrolling through the icons you will also get a nice bounce animation to the icons. If you are one who doesn't like to leave your BlackBerry's homescreen, then this theme is for you. DroidSlide also comes in a version with a weather slot, and is soon to release a premium version of the theme. Pick it up OTA via the forum link below.


    Hope Tree 2 Theme

    Our next choice is Hope Tree version 2. This is a very good looking theme we found in the forums. It features 4 user defined icons on the top of your homescreen, weather slot, hotspots, and a slider along the bottom that holds 10 more icons. The theme is simple, classy, and will look great with any of your favorite wallpapers. You can pick it up for your 95xx device via the forum link below.

    Paid Themes of the Week

    Our next pick is CarbonBB by BB-Freaks. This is another theme with a very functional homescreen. It features 6 user vertically placed apps on the homescreen, as well as 6 locked icons (Browser, Manage Connections, Messages, Profiles, BBM, and Lock). It also has a hidden today area, transitions, and looks very good with any wallpaper. You can pick up CarbonBB at the CrackBerry App Store on sale for $3.99 until May 10th. BB-Freaks is also having a sale on the rest of their theme collection. You can pick up any of their themes for $1.99 until May 6th.

    Our final pick of the week is iHD from Cocky Culture. The theme features a hidden dock for your 4 favorite applicaitons, custom icons and graphics, a hidden today area, and transitions. There is even an option to change your dock color to match whatever wallpaper you have set. iHD is on sale for $2.95 till May 7th and available for most devices.

      Contest: We have 50 copies of CarbonBB to give away. Just leave a comment on this post to enter. Contest ends this Sunday at Midnight PST. Please only leave one comment, multiple entries wont count.

      That concludes our roundup for this week. We hope you enjoyed it, keep those tips and suggestions coming to our email,!

      BlackBerry Theme Roundup for May 3rd 2010 - 50 Copies of CarbonBB to be Won!



      I would love to have it for my Javelin and flash it around to my mates in Malaysia. I am sure they will head to the store to get one for their BlackBerry too.

      i've been using this theme for about a month now and really like it. once you get it set up the way you like it its very easy to maneuver around your BB. definitely worth trying out.i have three other paid for themes and i still use the DroidSlide

      First time I've tried to win a theme on here cause this is one of the first ones I've seen that I'd actually like to have on my phone.

      I was just checking out the carbon theme recently. Maybe if they showed it with other walls I might have more interest.

      i just swapped out the bezel on my curve 8900 and it looks great. this theme would definitely compliment it!

      Thank God for all the memory in my 9700...I'm going to push it to the limit with storage of themes and apps. This would be a great one to add!

      That BBCarbon looks awesome! Gimmie gimmie hehehe. And the droidslide theme I've been using for awhile now and its great!

      Having just become a Blackberry owner - I'm constantly on the lookout for new themes to personalise my phone...this is fabulous!! Can I have 1 too?? Please??
