Building on the success of his Calx Real Icon Theme, Dave has dropped another awesome 3D theme called SWINE. This is another great theme using 3D rendered icons to give it a unique look. SWINE has a hidden dock, 3D battery and signal meters and custom icons. I love the design on this theme and the flow of colors.

MyBlackBerry Registration Now Open For Everyone?!?

MyBlackBerry Registration Now Open For Everyone?!?

In any event, it seems as though...

We touched on this a while back...
