That is the one thing that really ticks me off about Android devices. Unless it is the stock wallpaper you have to jump threw hoops to get it to size correctly on your screen. On Apple devices its as simple as 1 click. Why can't Android do that??

That isn't solved. That's a workaround.

On HC devices, try setting an image as your wallpaper. Even if the image is really high-res, it only allows you to select a very small portion of the picture to use as a wallpaper. The end result is, your selection gets all blown-up and pixelated. It's nigh-impossible to get a good-looking, full-res wallpaper without using one of the stock wallpapers or a workaround.

Is this really a honeycomb issue or is it the form factor of the screen needing to have a wallpaper that fits portrait and landscape? I wonder how wallpaper selection is on the smaller galaxy tabs?

If an image fits the screen, it fits. It shouldn't matter what way I'm holding it.
