Nature’s Breeze and Black Floral by Raypho – 2 new themes provide a breath of fresh air to your BB

It’s been awhile since I’ve written a review (I know, you’ve missed me), but I’m back because there are finally some themes to be talked about and looked at for OS7.  With the lack of TB7, developers have to, dare I say it…hack TB6 to come up with some sort of customization of the default theme. Having said that, they are doing a great job in bringing themes to OS7 device owners and making them quite happy. The two that I want to show you today are by none other than Raypho. I can not tell you how excited I was when he started porting some of his previous themes to OS7. Now granted they are still default style, but still have enough elements of the previous custom versions to make them different.  Keep reading to find out more!

Embrace a new theme by drkapprenticeDesigns: ” Entwined ”

  I have had the good fortune to test out this new theme from dcburke of drkapprenticeDesigns, a developer at Themes In Motion.   Like most of his themes, this one showcases a unique feature that will twist your mind!   2 docks, one ROTATING,  that can both hide or show, hidden ocd and very smooth navigation.  When you think of being entwined, you think of being interlaced with something else.  Well with Entwined, your Blackberry  will be laced with this theme.  Read more and find out more about how to join and entwine your blackberry with function and class.

New Video Shows BlackBerry Bold 9780 Running on Telus

A tipster has submitted a video to the CellGuru that shows the unreleased BlackBerry Bold 9780 Running on Telus. The Telus branded 9780 appears to be only displaying the network, so there is no word on the actual device performance. Sources have confirmed the Webkit browser on the HSPA+ network works like a charm. It has been said the 9780 will be available through Telus around the last weeks of October, which is right around the corner. Rogers may see the device a month after in November as well. We know Canada is picking it up, who will be the first U.S carrier to launch the refreshed Bold? Click here to view in Mobile

OS 6.0.0.161(Beta) Review

Earlier this week (Monday to be exact) an unofficial version of OS 6 was leaked on to the net for the Torch 9800. Out of the box the 9800 came with version OS 6.0.0.141. Only 3 days after the device’s launch the beta started hitting thousands of 9800 devices. Personally I had very high hopes for this unofficial update, because I thought it would be a patch to fix the voice echo during calls that so many consumers have been reporting as well as increase the webkit’s web page rendering speed.
