It's theme roundup time again! There is a good mix of themes for everyone after the break, so get in there and check them out. Contest is posted at the end, so make sure you read through. Also, every week I see people entering the contest without reading what devices the offered theme is compatible with, then being disappointed when they win. Make sure you read the descriptions! And make sure you're sending in your themes to themeroundup[at]crackberry.com. See you all next week!
Trois by glitterstars
Trois is the first premium theme produced by glitterstars. Brand new graphics including signal meters and backgrounds are just the beginning. This theme is unique in a sense where it can be customized in many ways. The dock has 3 different opacities: opaque (pink version will be pink, green will be black), semi-transparent and transparent. Also unique to this theme is the user's choice of the weather slot; hidden, left or right side. The today screen has a semi-transparent background which is hidden along with the dock. Included as a special bonus for those who purchase the theme: a custom colored BerryWeather set and custom colored BatteryEx icons made to match the theme colors.
Trois is just $2.99 and is available in pink or green. If you have a BlackBerry 96/89/9700 on OS 5.0 you should check them out!

ToonLand by SadosBerryDesigns
This is such an adorable and fun theme! ToonLand by SadosBerryDesigns is playful and full of smart little details. The star on the right side of the home screen is your signal meter, and the little star to its left is for wifi. On the left of the screen you will see a sun when your battery is full, and a moon when it needs to be charged. Tap the little sheep at the bottom to hide and show the dock full of super cute icons. The app screen background is a beach scene! Girls if you're looking for a different theme for your Torch, this is it.
