Built By Request let us know that they have released their first paid premium theme in the BlackBerry Sync Store. The theme is called Play and it’s a PS3 Replica Theme for all you PS3 fans. Let’s take a closer look…
The description from the store is as follows:
PS3 Replica Theme for the 9630 and 9700. Closest action seen from scrolling icons to meters. Theme is light on the memory for all the interactions at 520kb. All icons (excluding the first slot) are reduced in size to show even more of the wallpaper which is user changeable and will display on the lock screen (older os 5.0). First slot intended for weather slot which also displays on the lock screen (older os 5.0)
The features listed are as follows:
- Stationed dock of 8 user selected mini icons
- Hidden Mini Icons under user dock become visible when entering a column of the user dock
- 1st slot intended for Weather Application (Shows on Home and Lock Screen)
- Custom Signal Meter Shows as numbers in the banner next to “Play”
- Custom Battery Meter Shows percentage of battery status
- Wallpaper friendly: Home screen image displays on lock screen (with older os 5.0)
The theme is also available for two devices: The BlackBerry Tour 9630 and the BlackBerry Bold 9700 with 5.0 OS.
I installed this theme on my BlackBerry Tour 9630 so I could check it out and share some screenshots with you.
I don’t have a PS3 to be honest, but I’ll walk you through the theme. It’s a black, white, and grey theme. The very top right has the weather app slot which I have placed the BerryWeather app in. The battery life shows as the battery and percent in tiny numbers. The tube in the top right shows the bars of service available as a number and the time and date in small numbers and fonts.
The row that sites below that has eight customizable apps.The first will scroll through power, lock, and alarm. The second will let you scroll through Options, Set up, Manage Connections, and Help. The third will scroll through Camera and Pictures. The fourth will let you scroll through the Media apps. The fifth will allow you to scroll through videos and the Video Camera. The sixth is games. The seventh will let you browse through the Browser, Facebook, Twitter for BlackBerry, and MySpace. The last one allows you to scroll through the messenger, messages and compose.
Clicking on the menu button brings up all the icons, and they are all native icons that white on grey. Options are also in grey, I’ve included a few shots of what the BlackBerry Messenger and Options looks like too.
As you can see, the icons are easy to read and very familiar. It’s smooth and fast, and should bring joy to you PS3 fans out there. And to top it off, we have even struck up a deal for our loyal readers. Right now Play is available in the BlackBerry Sync Store for $6.99, but for our loyal readers, if you use the code: BBSyncLoyalty , you will save a whole 75% off, making it an entire $1.75, which is open to the first 100 purchases, so hurry.
