Create BlackBerry Themes for the latest BlackBerry Smartphones this Summer


In addition to soccer fever in South Africa and blockbuster movies piquing your interest this summer, it is time to demonstrate your creative inclinations by crafting themes for the latest BlackBerry® smartphones – the BlackBerry® Pearl™ 3G smartphone and the BlackBerry® Bold™ 9650 smartphone.

At Dev Con 2009, our theme product teams unleashed the new, rebranded BlackBerry® Theme Studio 5.0. We are psyched to see the amazing uptake on this robust set of creative tools within the development community. The quality of themes available on BlackBerry® App World™ proves that developers are well aware of the opportunity to bring the best franchises and creative skins to market to millions of BlackBerry smartphone users.

So grab the latest BlackBerry Theme Studio 5.0 Service Pack 1 – which adds support for the latest BlackBerry smartphones – and get theming!

    i was looking forword to buying my new phone which was a black berry and when i had it , i thought it was rubbish.
    I was looking forword to using it as it looked amazing but to be honest i prefer to have a £30 phone rarther than the black berry .
    The black berry is very disserpointing and was nothing i imagined it to be .
    Another thing i dont like aout my black berry is that you cant get them on pay as you go you can only get them on contract.
