    It's way too late for 2.1 to get themes, since it's probably as good as in the bag. Besides, I'm pretty sure RIM has zero intention of adding a non-essential feature to the PB OS, when almost all efforts are going straight into BB10. Doing themes for 2.1 (ignoring the delays that would cause, etc) would suck much-needed resources away from the BB10 effort.

    (Even the first release of BB10 is unlikely to have themes, but if you're interested in ensuring it gets it ASAP, focus your efforts on evangelizing themes for BB10, not for 2.1 which is a lost cause as far as new features go at this point.)

    It would be nice to be able to have customized themes for the PB at some point in time. Whether that happens or not is a totally different question.

    I would like to see themes sometime before BB10 as its the only real way to make a device look the way you want.

    I say forget themes on PB OS. But once BB10 is out they should release a BB10 Theme Builder for all the theme loving people out there.

    It's probably to late, but I would welcome themes. Total customization is one of the many things I like about BlackBerry devices. Unfortunately I don't think that's high on the priority list for RIM at the moment

    Seriously doubt 2.1 will have themes; would be nice if they added them in BB10. Maybe they'll put some effort in since they totally abandoned any theme builder for OS7 but I'm not holding my breath any longer.

    It should, but I doubt it will. Rather see Skype or Netflix, but they will not be there either!

    The PlayBook *will* have theme support, some time after the launch of BB10... Hasn't RIM effectively indicated that already, in some fashion? Just not any time soon...

    Yup, its just a matter of time, since the themes are very requested by us, users... Someday they will get tired of our requests lol

    Meanwhile our PB will look like the one at the store...

    Sent from a old but beautiful BB 8520 or a new and shinny PB 2.0

    I agree, any OS prior to BB10 is just an interim step to BB10 so I don't care yet.

    In other threads there are a lot more missing pieces being talked about that are more functional and utility then themes.

    Let themes be the cherry on top of a completed and thorough OS.

    I took a survey in beta zone a few months back about customized fonts and send to features from homescreen.

    I think a perfect theme would be "Oh please release me oh my darling" sung to the Do Not Forsake Me.... from High Noon

    (edited to add: Please, the song could not be sung if tongue was planted firmly in cheek. Additionally, googling it, apparently it started the trend of having a movie SONG and did win the Academy Award)
