Since I wrote this post Peter has removed the purchase option from BBextras.com. Peter told me he has been forced to discontinue sales. Its a shame, these new themes were truly on the cutting edge of BlackBerry theme design. It is really sad to see Peters themes gone.
Peter MacDonald of BBeXtras has out done himself again. After releasing a stunning set of commercial themes in November he has returned with style. His new line includes 3 “Dark Side” themes in different styles, a Zen+ theme, and a slick Leopard style theme. At least one of these themes came out in late December while I was hibernating.
All of these themes are compatible with the 8100, 8300, & 8800 series devices. The prices range from $5–$8 which is pretty reasonable. Check out the screenshots below because you have to see it to believe it. I am not sure if these themes were created using the Plazmic Theme Builder version 4.3 beta that I mentioned before but they are sure impressive!
I had to pull some screenshots just to give you a taste. The effects on some of these are just downright cool. For example when you scroll down on the Leopard theme the widgets disappear. Also in the Zen+ themes the Zen bar disappears when not in use. Personally I am impartial to the background in the “Dark Side” themes. To me it just looks like jellyfish tentacles made of cheese.
