BlackBerry App World adds Themes

As promised at last month’s BlackBerry Developer Conference 2009, Research In Motion introduced a new Themes category via the BlackBerry App World virtual storefront. Spanning a multitude of subjects including movies, sports and nature scenes, Themes promise to impact the appearance of BlackBerry smartphone features like backgrounds, screens, homescreens, icons and menus, all stylistically reflecting the subject matter of each particular theme.
