If you own a BlackBerry Bold, there's a new theme for it that most of you will surely love. It's called DroidBerry, and will make you're WM-based handset look like it's running Android OS.

Unofficial firmware updates for the BlackBerry Storm appear lately like mushrooms after the rain. And here's a new one, the OS 18.104.22.168. We don't know what changes it brings, but we do know it has some.

BGR has posted a couple of screenshots showing a Visual Voicemail icon on the BlackBerry Bold's homescreen. The OS the guy was running on his handset was 22.214.171.124 and his carrier was AT&T, but the application didn't start because of the lacking Application Center components.

Vodafone subscribers owning a BlackBerry Storm 9500 should visit CrackBerry and download the latest 188.8.131.52 firmware update for the handset.
