App World to start selling themes?
Yesterday, I noticed a twitter from intomobile.com talking about a rumor that BlackBerry themes will be coming to App World in November. Coinciding it with the BlackBerry Developer Conference, I figured the rumor was probably spot on .. RIM usually announces "big" things at conferences. I won't go into the specifics of what it takes to get your app listed in App World, but let's just say that, as a commercial theme developer, if I have to jump through hoops in addition to paying RIM to list my themes, it probably isn't going to happen. The screenshot is a just that, a screen capture of one of the many sessions being offered at BBDC. Rumor? I highly doubt it with all the evidence pointing otherwise.
::edit:: BTW, I attended the BBDC last year and they had NOTHING in regards to themes or how to create visually pleasing UI... another reason on why the rumor prob isn't really a rumor anymore.

If you are a developer and interested in meeting up with PinStack Editors at BBDC, please send me a PM

RIM already missed the Theme boat.
I'm not saying anything more about it.

What I am worried about is BPlay simply steamrolling all other theme developers on App World thanks to their tight relationship with RIM.
