More and more smartphone manufacturers have been moving towards on-screen buttons, with Google really pushing for it over the physical button alternative. However, there are still a few OEMs (we're looking at you, Samsung) that have preferred to keep things a bit more traditional. Tell us which way you prefer and why.
New Color Home Themes for Android
Heres some new themes for your Android device presented by XDA member UpwardSpiral. If you are bored and want to completely change the color of your menus and more, this thread gives you the option to choose amongst Blue Bionic , Red Remix, and Orange Octane themes. Each one includes nine wall papers matching with the selected color and can be used with CyanogenMod 7 theme chooser.
All of them are available for free on the market.

UPDATE:These themes now use support the theme chooser wallpapers app (link below). Each app comes packaged with 9 color-matched wallpapers that you can use. To access them, install the theme chooser wallpapers app and the app will automatically show the apps matching your theme. This is based entirely on CyanogenMod’s wallpaper selector and I take no credit for any of the code supplied the the wallpapers app. All credit goes to them for making all of this possible.
Attn: Theme developers. Anyone is more than welcome to use this app for their own themes. Just contact me and I would be more than happy to give any info necessary for using it and my xml codes that I use.
These are my themes to use with the CyanogenMod 7 theme chooser.
To use, just install from the market (see links below) and select the theme from the theme chooser app
