    Plazmic "Sunday Comics" Theme

    Another article taken directly from Yahoo! Tech pages...enjoy!

    Spice Up Your Blackberry

    My favorite "desktop" phone theme of the moment is the "Sunday Comics" theme (by Plazmic) for BlackBerry devices. It's a cartoonish version of the BlackBerry desktop that treats each icon as a comic-book panel. I installed it on my Pearl a couple of weeks ago and am having a blast with it.

    For mail, I get a comic-book drawing of an envelope with a sound bubble—usually reserved for onomatopoeic words like "Blam" and "Pow"—informing me of a new message. Or for "BlackBerry Messenger," I get a dialogue bubble that alternates between "Hello" and "Hi There" when I scroll over it. In fact, all of the icons transform into something else when I scroll over them. Plus, I love the quasi-handwritten, comic-style font that's used for everything from menus to emails.

    I'm not even that into comic books, but I'd recommend this theme to anyone who wants to spice up a staid business BlackBerry device or just add some gravy-like dressing to an already hip Pearl. It just makes an otherwise typical day of tossing around information and communiqués a little more interesting.

    It looks like this theme has been around for a while, but no one—even my pals at T-Mobile—seems to have seen it, hence my shoutout. If you have a BlackBerry, you can easily download directly to your device on the BlackBerry home page or by clicking on the T-Zones icon (if you have a Pearl).

    Anyone have any other favorite themes for BlackBerry?

    Tried it, but it gets a little tiresome to the eyes after awhile.

    Looks cool & I don't read comics. What do the icons for 3rd party software look like?

    The 3rd party app icons don't change, as to be expected since they aren't suppliedn with the OS and thus, Plasmic wouldn't be able to make icons for them.

    Also, the third party apps have the same background as the others, so they don't stick out like a sore thumb!

    If you have 8100, check your bookmarks & goto your homepage (mobileblackberry.com) In the themes section there's a OTA version!

    That was a fun theme for couple of weeks when I had a Pearl...

    But these guys are developing some cool stuff nowadays... the stock themes kinda stink by comparison
