Everybody loves new themes for their BlackBerry right? Of course ya do, but did any of ya's reach the point where the "typical" style of themes just are not doing it for you any more? I know I have.
Enter elecite and their serious collection of premium themes. Some of you will remember elecite from when the Bold was first announced. They had one of the hottest Bold -"esque" themes out there and were offering it up for free. Since then they have expanded their selection of themes and each one of them is uniquely amazing.
Read on for my look at 3 of these works of BlackBerry art.
First up we have..Distinct, with a whole lot of green coloring involved in this theme I do have to say this is my least favorite out of them all, but that's just me. I'm not a huge fan of neon green. With that being taken care of, my personal thoughts on the color should take nothing away from your decision in picking this theme up, I love the background on this one and the custom icons and just the overall abstract art feel of it.
Next on the list we have Scion, with a circular motion set for the main screen and clearly identifiable icons designed with a minimalist approach this theme just rocks. If you are looking for a nice theme that presents it's self in a unique way while still keeping a elegant style with colors and fashion be sure to check Scion out.
Finally on the list, my favorite... Scortched. As some of you may have been able to tell these themes were all tested on a Pearl, however I do use a Bold as my daily BlackBerry and I truly hope this one gets a Bold makeover.
Right down to the custom icons to the icon "focus", this theme is just gorgeous, this is truly one of those themes where pictures of it will never do it any real justice, you have to have it on your device.
Now while I have fell in love with this theme, I did come across a unique situation..not really an issue for me but might be for some. When you change the background wallpaper, you have to consider that the icons when highlighted will still have the "flaming" highlight, therefore may not work well with certain wallpapers. Did not bother me as the wallpaper that comes with it looks awesome.
There you have it folks, 3 unique themes to get you away from the norm. You can grab them over at elecite where they also offer customization options for the icons as well. Please note though, these themes are for devices with 4.5 OS. All of the themes reviewed can be picked up for $6.99 and all of the themes are compatible with 81XX/83XX/88XX devices.
