Naturize by Berry Glow Designs
Combining crisp icons and elegant wallpapers and highlights, Naturize is a beautiful new theme from Berry Glow Designs. This is a great theme for those of you who enjoy the feel of the BB6 UI, but maybe want a change from the standard blue that is stock for RIM. Refreshing touches of green throughout the menus and screens help add a touch of newness to your experience, without totally changing the layout you're used to. And because Naturize is a variant of the stock theme, you know it's super fast, with no lag.
Naturize is FREE and compatible with Blackberry 85xx, 89xx, 9000, 91xx, 93xx, 95xx, 96xx, 97xx, and 9800.

Apres by iHeartMyBB.com
Apres by iHeartMyBB is an offspring of Focus (which was featured in last week's roundup), designed to provide more clarity. The hidden dock slides vertically. Docks and banners have a clear glass effect for added wallpaper friendliness and the battery and signal meters are custom made, text-style. Weather/OCD slot hides for convenience, allowing more home screen space. Torch landscape mode DOES have trackpad navigation, but does NOT have the hidden dock feature. Apres looks really awesome, and for the low sale price of just $.99 (regularly $2.49) you can't go wrong. This theme is compatible with BlackBerry 89xx, 96xx, 97xx, and 9800 (OS 5/6 only).

Pretty in Pink & Black by Ez E Deesignz
The name says it all with this theme. Pink wallpapers, black icons and details, and pink highlights combine with a curly font to give you a nice girly theme for your BlackBerry. Add to that two hidden docks on the left and right of the home screen, an easy-to-read clock, and a weather slot and you have a really pretty theme you'll be pleased to wear on your device. Pretty in Pink & Black is available for $1.99 and is compatible with BlackBerry 9650 and 97xx.

HeartBeat by Walker Themes
A couple of weeks ago we showed you HeartBeat by Walker Themes. This week, a new version has been released, and it's pink! With a two-color clock in a heart font and abstract battery and signal meters as well as a hidden dock and weather slot (activated by the three small circles at the bottom of the screen) on the home screen, its a delightfully minimal look. Your wallpapers will look great with this theme. The text based icons are handmade, and when you scroll over them it's as though the focus is breathing, pulsating when you pause on an icon. There are tons of great features in HeartBeat that make this an awesome theme. HeartBeat is available on sale for $3.99, regularly $5.99. The theme is compatible with BlackBerry 8350i, 85xx, 89xx, 9000, 91xx, 93xx, 95xx, 96xx, 97xx, and 9800.

Reflex by Gray Matter ThemesGray Matter Themes puts their own unique spin on reflecting themes with Reflex. Both functional and elegant, this theme features a hidden dock of reflected BB7 icons that also slides so you can access additional apps, a hidden today, and a weather slot (also hide-able). One really cool feature I hadn't seen before involves the dock, which you can partially retract to show off more of your wallpaper. The dock also reflects the elements there, such as the clock and date. Full of hot spots and keyboard shortcuts, this theme is sure to be a favorite. Reflex is available for $2.99 and is compatible with BlackBerry 89xx, 91xx, 95xx, 96xx, 97xx, and 9800.
