New S60 themes worth mentioningRed Equalizer for S60Taieb has released a new update to the popular Equalizer theme series for Symbian S60 3rd edition mobile phones. The new Red Equalizer v2 theme is an update of the old Red Equalizer theme released earlier this year. The new theme follows the design / icon packs of the other Equalizer series themes as the Pink Equalizer theme and the Blue Equalizer v2 theme released few months ago. Taieb keeps the good work in making some of the best S60 themes, but Pizero and Babi have been busy too.

Earlier this month, Pizero released a very good Euro 2008 theme for the Euro 2008 football championship and the abstract Leopard theme. The first theme is Full SVG and the second one is a bitmap 240x320 theme. Both themes are a catch for the eye. We would also like to recommend the the Black and Colors theme, a very good dark theme and it really saves the battery.

Babi has released the Italy football theme for the Euro 2008 football championship and some other very good themes as the Blackboard theme and the psiColors theme a very fresh one.
