After writing about the Nokia E6 a few weeks ago I realized there are still plenty of E71 and E72 users who probably feel neglected in the smartphone community since the focus now is on newer touchscreen smartphones with high-end specs and big screens. Today I’ll show you a theme that really caught my eye, made especially for S60v3 Eseries devices.

The colors are blue, green red, purple, and orange. The only color I’ve tried out so far is blue and I’m hooked on it. I’ll probably be trying out the green next. Just about all aspects of the UI is customized, including the Conversations app which some themers seem to miss. The homescreen widgets are also really nice.
