Every month I try and get together a showcase of some of the finest, quality New WordPress themes that have been  released. Today I will showcase only a limited number of WordPress themes from October in an attempt to keep the theme list displaying only well crafted and fantastically developed WordPress themes. Take a look at 10 hand selected new WordPress themes from October 2011, if you would like the themes selected to meet a different criteria drop in a comment.


The Sky WordPress theme is unique in how it’s homepage operates, loading all of your content seamlessly using ajax. This means that no matter how many pages you have in the “slider,” your initial page load speed will be lightning fast as each page is only loaded when it is displayed.


When visiting your website on small screen sizes, the viewing experience can be awkward. HandHeld mobile WordPress theme solves this problem by serving your mobile visitors an alternate design, optimized for the small screen. HandHeld works in alongside with your normal theme, and is only used when the plugin detects that your visitor is using a mobile phone.


Simfo is a minimal and responsive WordPress theme with slight subtle use of grungy texture. The WordPress theme has great balance of white space and beautiful typography. The theme is also responsive, working on all screen resolutions and most browsers including the mobile devices such as iPad, iPhone, Android, and Blackberry.


Clean is a responsive, minimal, and extremely stylish WordPress theme that looks amazing across multiple devices and screen resolutions. This versatile WordPress theme can be used as a blog or a portfolio to show off your work.


The Buro theme is a beautiful business WordPress theme that was designed by Juanma Teixido. The theme has a responsive layout to display your website content optimally at all resolutions and browser widths, and on all media devices.


Use any of the Announcement preset homepage templates to announce the launch of your new business. The WordPress theme has a flexible component system to bend Announcement to your desire.


The ‘Briefed’ WordPress theme was designed by Cameron Moll, the theme has been created for all types of designers & creatives thanks to it’s modular layout and clean, minimal design. The home page is easily customizable with a portfolio powered by custom post types, optional Dribbble feed, and jsMasonry for an adaptive layout.


The Studeo theme is a featured-packed and yet a very simple-to-use WordPress theme for the creative agency, freelancer or virtually any other business looking for an attractive, professional web presence. Inside Studeo, you’ll find a filterable portfolio, a configurable homepage, custom widgets, custom page templates and a simple set of theme options.


Sideshow is a portfolio theme for the artsy fartsy with a built-in Tumblr style blogging system. The WordPress theme is simple, to the point, and does little to distract viewers away from your work but everything to showcase it. Sideshow has clean lines, a minimal design and two colour schemes which are eye-candy for lovers of “simple” yet a great blank canvas for the modifying type.
