Plazmic is Dead Plazmic.com is Dead?  Long Live BlackBerry Themes & Animated Graphics!

While doing my daily check of the Plazmic web site to see if they have released a fix for the latest disaster of an update to the Content Developer Kit (CDK) (Read Our Story Here), I couldn’t help but notice that http://www.plazmic.com now auto-forwards to a page on the official Research in Motion (RIM) site (http://na.blackberry.com/eng/developers/themes/) called, “BlackBerry Themes & Animated Graphics”.

For those that don’t know, Plazmic was the company (owned by RIM) that produced the Content Developer Kit that allowed the creation of themes by 3rd party developers (anyone with a PC), for the BlackBerry smartphone.

This is exciting for a number of reasons, not the least of which is that hopefully RIM has decided to bring the Content Developer Kite (CDK) in house and not make the mistakes the Plazmic team were.

Of course the first thing that we need is for RIM to release an update for 4.7 or better yet a new version 4.8 that allows for the “full” creation of BlackBerry Tour themes to replace the watered down, poor excuse of an update we got from Plazmic on 08-12-09.
