User customised themes for BlackBerry handsets have been commonplace ever since BlackBerrys became popular.
Until now, creating your own theme for a BlackBerry has required quite a lot of technical know-how and the right software to make the job look professional.
With the release of BlackBerry Theme Studio 5.0, which is available as a free download for anyone with a Windows PC, RIM has attempted to make theme creation a simpler process with broader appeal.
Although the mobile manufacturer has yet to expand upon just how it has made the creation of themes more accessible, it is clear that a simplification of the process will not result in a lack of depth in the potential of the software.
A technical blog, created by RIM to help Theme Studio 5 users, stated that those looking to create high quality themes will still need imaginative powers as well as access to and knowledge of graphic design software such as Photoshop.
If you would like to create your own BlackBerry themes then there is a detailed guide to get you started and various online resources for independent developers of BlackBerry software.
