What do you get when you combine fresh ideas with unique graphics, toss them together with hand-coded precision, and top it all off with a heavy dose of attention to detail? You get a new theme from Hedone Design, that's what! Wakai is their latest offering, and it is all of the above and more. Leave it to them to design a home screen full of useful features while maintaining a clean and open feel. Don't be afraid to try out different wallpapers with this theme, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised at how many actually work well with the layout.
The vertical text dock on the home screen actually expand to reveal applications, the majority of which are also text with the exception being the Favorites menu, which opens to reveal a hidden dock of your first 8 icons from the application screen. This is easy to get used to and quite intuitive to use. The clock sits in front of two semi-transparent numbers which represent your battery and signal meters. Wakai is very pleasing with green accents throughout the theme that are soothing and stand out well. Wakai is available for $6.99 and is compatible with BlackBerry 8330/50i, 85xx, 89xx, 9000, 93xx, 95xx, 9630/50, and 9800.
