The FIRST theme available for the BlackBerry Bold 9930/9900!!
As we know it, RIM hasn't made BlackBerry Theme Studio available for BlackBerry 7 devices but that hasn't stopped the folks from Magmic from creating what is most certainly the first commercially available BlackBerry 7 theme for the BlackBerry Bold 9900 / 9930. Falling right into the holiday season, it was only fitting to introduce Deck the Halls as the first BlackBerry 7 theme available. Aside from how the theme was made without a compatible BlackBerry Theme Studio, Deck the Halls holds a few other secrets as well:
As the days in December pass, this theme will gradually add decorations all over, transforming a normal room into a cozy den suited for the holiday season on OS 6 devices and higher. Keep a keen eye out to find all the changes! This theme comes with an icon package complete with a festive wreath to highlight your favourite apps.
While no one was willing to give up the secret of how it all works, aside from saying it all came together with a little holiday magic, Magmic did let me know that as a special offer they have going on -- you can pick Deck the Halls now for only $1.99 until Boxing day after which time it will return to the regular price of $2.99. Oh, and they have more BlackBerry 7 themes coming in the next couple of weeks as well. You can jump on past the break for some more screenshots of Deck the Halls.
*Note* - Deck the Halls also supports various BlackBerry 6 powered devices as well, check the link for a full compatability list
