This version supports the following BlackBerry devices. It was released day before yesterday as a leak and then officially right after. I know several themes have come out for the newer 6.0 devices. I kept hoping that some of my themes would work with OS 6.0, but no luck and no workaround. Luckily, v6.0 is released and I have seen several theme developers busily releasing some beautiful themes for OS 6.
