Try Fancy Widgets https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...=search_result or Go Weather https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...=search_result

Both have 4x1 or 4x2 sizes and features various options for customization and skins

Thank u for your share but first of all everything 'GO Launcher Dev Team' creates is taking the devices originality its my opinion and the other think is i really dont want any background panel just with simple letters the hour and the battery level and weather option when u pres the weather section.

Try this one. It's a bit larger size than what you are looking for but it's quite nice.

Sure. I forgot to mention that these widgets (at least the weather widget) will not work on GB roms. They were lifted out of Asus tablets which came with HC but will work just fine with ICS roms.
If you have GB rom. You can stop here and decide if these widgets are worth awhile for you to upgrade.
If you have ICS you can read on.

First, you need to get a root explorer app. I use the RootExplorer but any app that will let you access root folders will do.

Move the weather and deskclock apks to /system/app folder. There should already be a deskclock.apk in there so you will want to either make a copy to another location (for safe keeping) or just rename the one that is in there as deskclock.apk.tmp. Now move the new apks into this folder.

Next thing you need to do is to change the permissions of these newly placed apks. You need to set them rw_r__r__ (r_read, w=write)

Reboot and now you should see the weather and deskclock widgets as selectable widgets.

Enjoy.
