im gonna disagree and argue that many features of BB7 go backwards in time. the lack of the precision zen theme is absolutely ridiculous, they should not be forcing users to a new UI, i personally absolutely abhor the pages, as i find it confusing and dont like how things end up as doubles (why do i need a media folder if i have a media page etc). this is just my opinion of course, but i see no reason that RIM couldnt have included the pages view as a theme for those who want to use it, and include the precision zen theme as well for those who prefer the look of OS5 such as myself. additionally, i see no reason they couldnt have taken it a step further and included a hidden today feature as well (my favorite 3rd party theme feature and what i miss most about not having an official theme builder for BB7). Another aspect that goes back in time is of course the non-AF camera, the "new" round LED, battery life etc but thats unrelated, as this is a conversation about themes. the point is, there are some key features i loved from my bold 9650 that just arent an option on my 9930, which left a bitter taste in my mouth and is why i bought an iphone4s. i switch back to the 9930 periodically, but it never lasts long because the UI bothers me so much. its nice having some themes available now, but until we get a real theme builder its never going to solve all the issues it suffers from now. to each their own though, i know some people love the new layout...one of my fav aspects of os5 was its simplicity, paired with a Hidden today theme, it was a perfect communications device...now if only it had a touch screen and the 9930s keyboard..
