FOR WM6.5 ONLY!!!!

by: m.carroll

A glossy version of PureBlack2 found here:

I haven't yet decided if it's too glossy for my likings, but hope you all enjoy.


Skin for Windows Mobile (Phone) 6.5, cab's fully uninstallable. Works with VGA/WVGA and QVGA/WQVGA, just download the correct resolution (without the W). Enjoy.

May 9, 2009 - Optical illusion trickery fixed in both versions. Please re-download!
May 8, 2009 - Added QVGA Release
May 7, 2009 - Initial VGA Release

Beautiful skin, which I will definitely use when you create the QVGA version.

Well done!

I haven't done much in terms of Titanium skinning, so I may change the clock and other icons in the near future, although I've been concentrating on only just the WM6.5 OS theming. The main purpose of my two skins so far have been to have a very Windows Mobile 6.5 feel to them not altering it too much, so in future themes I might do more with the scrollbar and other elements, but for now I'm just trying to do a bit without overpowering the MS feel.

I can do colored versions of this one if anyone's interested, just drop a reply with some color ideas...

I unfortunately don't have a QVGA device to test on (poor dead Wizard), and there are no Emulators available yet (will make things TONS easier), and PureBlack (my other theme) had some issues on QVGA so I need to sort them out before I port this one.
