Contest: Enter to win one of 25 free copies of Galaxy Ring! 

It's a new week, and we are back again with a new BlackBerry Theme Roundup for your enjoyment. I changed up the format a little this week so I hope you all like it. Keep sending in your creations and suggestions to themeroundup[at]crackberry[dot]com. Please keep in mind that the roundup is simply a sampling of themes found in the CrackBerry forums and in the store and that it isn't a competition between developers, so there is no winner among them. The roundup is just a way to highlight what is posted and hopefully bring your attention to something you may have missed during the week. With that said, enjoy this week's picks, and be sure to read all the way through for the contest at the end! Have a great week everyone!

Brisk by Rose_MMDesign
Brisk is a newly updated theme from Rose_MMDesign with a style that is both unique and professional. Features include hidden dock and today area, hotspots for the clock, messages, manage connections, and options, and keyboard shortcuts. I really like the battery and signal meters on this theme. They are digital, and when the signal and battery get low, the indicator turns red so you can tell with a glance what the status is. The font used is clear and easy to read, and the menu/list fonts are user defined. Brisk is available on sale right now for $4.99 and is compatible with 9800, 97xx/96xx/89xx, 95xx, 9000, and 85xx devices running 5.0 and greater.
Ceres by Pootermobile

With the new Pootermobile theme Ceres you can personalize your homescreen in a new unique way. At first glance on the homescreen you see 6-8 customizable icons and a grungy looking polaroid with a nice wallpaper. Don't like the picture in the wallpaper? No problem! Simply change your wallpaper like you always do and BAM! your own wall comes up inside the polaroid! For keyboard devices make sure the wallpaper is wider that it's height, or in landscape mode for optimal viewing on the homescreen. For touchscreen devices make sure the height of the picture is greater than the width, or in portrait mode.
  • Customizable icons (6 for keyboard devices - 8 for touchscreen devices)
  • Transitions throughout
  • Unique icons and meters

Ceres is available for $3.99 and is compatible with 97xx/96xx/89xx, 95xx, and 9000 devices running OS 4.6 and greater.

Tropical Beach 2 by Adorno

Summer may be over, but you can keep the feel of the warm beach on your BlackBerry year 'round with Tropical Beach 2 by Adorno. This is a simple theme with inviting beach and ocean backgrounds on every screen, a hidden 5-6 icon customizable dock, and custom fonts and colors throughout. I especially liked the wavy banner on the homescreen! Tropical Beach 2 is available for just about every device out there running OS 4.5 and above. Grab this one today on sale for $3.99.

Luny by Artem

Luny by Artem is a cartoony-styled, eye grabbing theme delivering amazing graphics and animation to your BlackBerry. With it's liquid-ice-filled battery meter, signal lights, and custom LED displays, you can be sure this one is a keeper. This theme includes all original artwork so you can be sure there's nothing else like it.
  • 2 Weather Slots
  • 6 Customizable Dock Icons
  • 5 Item Hidden Today
  • Insanely Unique Battery and Signal Meters
Luny is available for $4.99 right now, and is compatible with 97xx/96xx/89xx, 95xx, and 9000 devices running OS 4.6 and greater.
HTC Desire HD by VinceThePrince

VinceThePrince is back again, this time with HTC Desire HD. If you're fond of the Droid look on your BlackBerry, you will likely want to check this one out. HTC Desire HD is available in 3 versions: Metal, Wood, and Slate. When you purchase this theme, you are essentially getting two themes in one! That's because no matter which version you bu you also have access to the standard SenseUI skin and can switch back and forth WITHIN the theme via the Skin Manager.

  • Custom EVERYTHING (icons, battery, signal, wallpapers, menus, etc)
  • Built-in settings UI
  • Built-in skin manager
  • Panoramic wallpapers (wallpapers that slide left/right as you navigate through the different homescreens) - can be toggled on/off in the settings UI
  • User-defined icons on homescreen, with options for an additional 1 or 2 docks on second homescreen (via settings UI)
  • Large HTC-like clock widget

HTC Desire HD is available for 97xx/96xx/89xx, 95xx, and 9800 devices running OS 4.7 and greater, and is on sale for $2.99 right now.

Galaxy Ring by Walker Themes

Galaxy Ring is an unique theme because of its navigation style. Most of themes use vertical or horizontal navigation, but Galaxy Ring is different, implementing a 360 degree rotation of 6 user definable homescreen icons. The addition of a hideable weather slot and hidden today make your BlackBerry more functional. Custom battery meter, icons, colors and fonts throughout make Galazy Ring a pleasing experience on your device. Available for $5.99 and compatible with 97xx/96xx/89xx, 95xx, 93xx, 9000 and 85xx devices running OS 5.0 and the 9800. Contest: Walker Themes has generously given us 25 copies of Galaxy Ring to give away this week. To enter to win simply leave a comment below. One comment per person please. Winners will be chosen at random this Sunday at Midnight PST. Good luck!

BlackBerry theme roundup for November 15, 2010 - Win 1 of 25 free copies of Galaxy Ring!


.. Win the contest for the Torch of Colorware, is anyone interested in a free 9700? I feel if I win I should give it away as part of a contest :D

Desire HD looks amazing, and I like the clean feel of Brisk. Galaxy Ring looks great aswell though- a good prize for the lucky 25

hopefully they will come out with one for 9780. Am considering making the switch but OS6 non-touch themes seem to be hard to come by.

this is a really awesome and perfect theme for a Blackbery Torch 9800, it's elegant, nice, and decent.
With this theme you don't look like a kid with a blackberry torch on the hand, really... you look like a profesional, a owner of a company, a V.I.P on the world and a lot of things more!
I Would really like this theme for my torch for many reasons that you can look here( yes here in this post lol).

With this theme you can be different, from the others Blackberrys, and the best is on the torch all people with the OS 6.0 but you have another theme, that is so great, people will never stop lookin you with this theme!

But really the best of this theme like alwayssss
Is that the best page in the entire world have it ! no fails, just perfect.

Thanks to crackberry to have it!

Good luck to all!


The themes look awesome...especially the Galaxy Ring one... Is there way to modify the ring? (e.g. enlarge the icons or to tilt the ring 'up' or 'down'?) Regardless it's a nice piece of creative design...Blackberry should make themes like these standard on all their OS 6 handsets...

pick me up!! i have already Galaxy Ring runs on my torch and onyx..and my best friend loves this theme too. would be great to win a copy for my friend's 9000!!!

viva walker themes!!

Galaxy theme is really an unique theme, i wonder how the 360 degree 6 rotation icons on homescreen! cool !
i ever found like this one before, but rotation icons are static, you can't change them!!

ENTER me!!

thank Walker Themes and Crackberry

This is a great looking theme and the navigation looks awesome. Wouldn't mind winning a copy of this for my Storm 2! Thanks for the chance CB!

Amazes me how far themes have come along in the past couple of years, although like anything else in the technological spectrum, it was only a matter of time. The designs and layouts just keep getting better - keep up the great work guys!

Count me in! I love trying new and different themes. And this will be a VERY nice addition to my collection :)

im very picky about my themes I like this one its pretty nice i would like to try it out so give me a shot at it pls CB rocks

That galaxy theme, looks AMAZING!
It is kinda mind blowing when you look at it :P

Lets hope who win's, is at least one of them being a owner of a TORCH!

This looks sweet. Would be nice to finally win one of these contest. hope the colorware Torch comes my way as well.

I had a them close to this on my bb 9000 and since I went to 9700 and now a 9800 I haven't had any luck finding anything like it
Wouldn't mind paying for it but free is always better

hopefully I will win this...after HP7 I kind of expected a masterpiece like this from Walker Themes
