OK so let's be real RIM is probably putting more resources into bb10 than they are for theme building os7. Like it or not os7 is the latest device but it's also the last of its kind. Qnx is the future and present and that's just the way it is. You should be more concerned about getting themes on bb10 devices because that's all rim cares about right now....bb10-Qnx. Os7 is dead and gone along with the outdated java its built on. Qnx Qnx Qnx that is all.

I agree to a point but there won't be any BB users left by the time they get around to bb10. Remember, bb10 won't even be where iOS5 is today for iPhone. As Apple has proven on all their products is that software trumps hardware.

I would also like to see a Theme builder for OS 7. I would think RIM would want to make money off the revenue stream that themes brings onAppWorld.
I highly doubt it is spare change when it all comes down to it and not having a TB for OS 7 is hindering developers and RIM from making money.

I've actually been recommending users downgrade to OS6 in order to download themes from App World. I cannot tell you the countless support emails and angry reviews I get from OS7 users that they've downloaded a theme that's not compatible with thier device. Until RIM releasesTB7, this is the only recourse we have to continue generating revenue for a discontinued market. I've even started including the downgrade suggestion in my long description so that it's visible in app world. Maybe if enough users see it, the market for OS6 themes will be revived, at least until there's a TB7 release.
