Contest: 25 Copies of Stealth 2.0 to be won. Leave a comment!
Hey theme junkies, I've been on a short hiatus over the last week, but I'm back and in full swing after this past Labour Day. Hope everyone had a great long weekend, and I've got some great themes to show you this week in the roundup. DevCon is coming up in a few short weeks, let's keep fingers crossed that we can see some 9800 themes shortly after! Hit the jump and we'll get down to it.
Legacy by Benox Graphics
Clean and professional, this theme works well for many different tastes. Starting with the ever more present OS 6 icons, located in a 6 icon user-defined bottom dock, and flowing throughout the various elements of the theme, the clean look is evident everywhere. Three homescreens are at the user's fingertips, with a dedicated today and "View" screen each accessible by scrolling from the homescreen. Suitable for those looking for a different flavor to their device, while still keeping it professional, it's available from the CB store for $4.99.

Inscribe by alphakoi
It's not often I'm told that something I've written has made an impact on someone, but I got a PM the other day from alphakoi telling me that my decision to feature one of his themes in the roundup had inspired him to work hard and bring out a new theme. He hasn't disappointed with this latest, creating a great new concept for the homescreen and polishing the rest of the theme up nicely to match. All the homescreen "icons" are transparent tabs, stacked on the bottom in two four icons rows. Transparency runs throughout the theme, from the homescreen meters, to the menus. Premium quality, for a zero dollar price tag. Check it out in the forums thread below and support a great free themer.
Stealth 2.0 by ALH Designs
I love the concept for this theme, with four large buttons on the bottom of the homescreen launching mutiple applications each. TheMedia button pops up a shortcut menu to Pictures, Music, etc, while the Messaging button launches a menu including such functions as BBM, Messages, SMS, and the like. A row of 6 user-defined mini icons sits above the buttons, providing quick access to your favorite apps. A weather slot rounds things out nicely on the homescreen, and the rest of the theme shows the same attention to detail. I particularly like the red highlights, with the message list highlights being a real nice touch. Available for multiple devices in the CB store for $3.99.

Carbon Blue 11 by miz_pimp
Another repeat entry from a great free theme dev, this one is specially made for the boys. Simple and straightforward, the theme has 11 user-defined mini icons in a hidden top dock, and a weather slot located in the bottom banner. Clean and minimal, there are also versions with and without a hidden today, and even a verison without the hidden dock. A quality theme for those looking for something professional for their Curve device, it's available as a free OTA download from the forums thread below.
That's it for the theme roundup this week, keep those tips and suggestions coming to the roundup email at email@example.com.
