Been looking for some good wallpapers for my tab but still not liking many so far.


Thought would be good idea if everyone share ones they have or links to where good ones exist.

Also I've been looking at 1280 x 800 resolution ones & always seem to require being cropped. Is this not the correct size?

I'm one for minimalistic and dark wallpapers. the less distraction the better.

Depends what you are into. If you google something like Nature Wallpapers HD you should get quite a few sites where you get install straight off the net. Sometimes you get a choice of resolutions. And it's better than copying it into the tab because you don't loose the resolution over cropping. You would have a choce of theams like sports, natur ... Some of them are really good looking. Good luck.

I also prefer dark wallpapers but on the phone. On the tablet and desktop I prefer the high-contrast type of wallpaper, the one that will bring in front the elements on the screen.

So, currently I have this wallpaper: http://i44.tinypic.com/16karly.jpg

The desktop with that one is attached.

That looks awsome. What widgets you are using? And how did you get icon labels in small letters instead of normal style?

I'm glad you like it .

The launcher is ADW EX - and this thing is allowing the naming of the icons/folders according to my liking. All the icons on the main desktop, except Play store, are folders containing the respective applications.

The widgets are:

big weather - "HD widgets"
small monitors in the bottom left - "Battery monitor widget" and "System Tuner"
the music player - PowerAMP
toggles set on the bottom rigt - "Extended Controls"

The other two are Calendar widget from touchwiz and the mailer is "Moxier mail".

That's all ... simple yet functional
