This may come as a shock to some of you but it's only been a short time since Pootermobile released his first OS7 compatible theme Fresco. As you've all been patiently waiting to see what new and inventive design he could think of next, lo and behold Valence popped up in BlackBerry App World. This theme is all about creating a new bond between you and your BlackBerry and remembering that feeling when you first really started to feel connected to it. We've all been missing Pootermobile on our OS7 devices and now he's released another gem.

If you're looking for eye candy for your display then this is it. The moment I activated this on my device my jaw literally dropped and I believe a "wow" passed through my lips. While it's about the bond we share with our BlackBerry this is also a very balanced theme. No one color is too overpowering, too bright, or too dark. I love its simplicity, how the icons are white with blue accents, and that the light blue style continues in all of the different menus, screens, and panels. From the small banner and color scheme down to the focus icons they all come together to create nice refreshing theme. Speaking of icons, can I admit that I absolutely love the ones included here? Each one is meticulously designed and I'm sure it took Pootermobile a lot of time and effort to create them.


  • Default OS6/OS7 layout
  • Wallpaper friendly
  • Custom icons
  • Media player skinned (on OS7 devices only)

For those of you who left behind a ton of Pootermobile's themes on your old device it's great to see him bring his unique style and creativity to OS7 without missing a beat. You'll be amazed by what he has been able to accomplish. Now that he's hit the ground running with OS7 you never know what's in store for us next.

This is a clean, bright, snappy, and wallpaper friendly theme that all you theme addicts will adore. Be sure to head on over to BlackBerry App World and grab this today for $1.99. It's compatible with BlackBerry 9100/05, 9350/60/70, 9650/70, 9700/80/88/90, 9800/10/50/60, and 9900/30 running OS6 and higher.
