Premium Holiday Themes from Bplay Available with Gift Cards


YouTube Link

Something we asked for last year was for BlackBerry App World to roll out gift cards. It’s a simple holiday wish that goes a long way if you know anyone with a BlackBerry. Currently, Bplay is offering a section of Holiday themes, as well as a gift card section so you can buy games, themes or apps for a friend or loved one. We also have gift cards in the Mobihand section. Maybe RIM will roll out their gift card system next year.

Check out all the Holiday themes over at Bplay from this link.

Free Holiday Themes from RIM Are Simple But Cheerful


free theme

RIM has released a few free holiday themes to celebrate the season and even though they’re pretty simplistic, they’re still nice to look at. Considering it’s RIM, it would have been cool to see some themes with a little more creativity and animations, but their is still time and apparently they’ll be releasing more free content throughout the holiday season.

Also, strangely enough, RIM is limiting these free themes to the US and Canada. Why wouldn’t RIM offer this to Latin America and Europe?

Happy New Years from BlackBerry Cool!

It’s that time of year when we sit back and think about the year that has passed. We think about our accomplishments and setbacks, and ponder how we can improve in the year to come. I’m sure RIM executives have their own, but I think a good Top 5 would include:

1. Not let email or BBM go down more than once.
2. Release a WebKit based browser that will make the competition worried.
3. Release a touchscreen and keyboard combo form factor.
4. Improve App World beyond the competition. Stop keeping up with the Johnsons.
5. Bring manufacturing costs down by at least 10%.

What would your New Year’s Resolutions for RIM be?
