Bphone: Blackberry Mimics iPhone Ui

by Paul Strauss

While many of the BlackBerry models out there are arguably more capable than Apple’s iPhone (i.e. GPS integration, not locked to AT&T, etc.), most would agree that the iPhone user interface is a bit more slick. The bPhone theme for BlackBerry lets you have your cake and eat it too.

bPhone Theme for Blackberry

The theme installs on BlackBerry 8700, Pearl, Curve and 8800 models, assuming you have at least OS 4.2.1 installed.

While the icons and interface aren’t identical to those on the iPhone, they’re similar enough to give you the same general look and feel. Even the battery and signal strength indicators are stylized versions of the iPhone UI elements. For areas where there wasn’t a clear parallel between iPhone and BlackBerry Mac OS X design standards were used (like using a beachball for the “busy” indicator).

Sorry, no multi-touch display or motion sensor is included.

    So I’m trying these skins (I’m gonna try icon and zen) with my Blackberry Curve. They’re very easy to install, and I’m using the over-the-air (OTA) install option that this person provided. You just put in an email that you sync to your blackberry and then it emails you links that the blackberry then installs. Then you reset your device and presto!

    This thing doesn’t support folders, which is a shame because I really love folders for things like messengers, and some of the icons are wonkey. It’s a very neat experiment, and I’m sure it’s fun for a lot of folks, but it’s just not me. I highly recommend that you try this though if you’re curious. It’s easy to install, and it doesn’t seem to have done any harm (which is always a good thing).
