Wallpaper size... something weird going on here?
So I was hunting around to figure out what the wallpaper size is for the Nexus One... most people seem to state it is 960x800, or 2 times wider than the standard 480 resolution.
I did a test to see how it would look on the device by creating a 960x800 image with red vertical lines every 192 pixels (which will divide it horizontally 5 times to match with the 5 home screens on the N1). Much to my dismay, it actually renders it differently (showing almost 3 of the 192px blocks on the center screen).
When swiping back and forth, it seems like there is some sort of parallax scrolling going on. You can see a full screen of apps/widgets (480px wide) scroll to the side, but you will see the background move some other amount of pixels. It's almost as though the background is scaled in some fashion horizontally. I was assuming it would somehow work like the home screens on the N900, where each screen has 1 block of 800x480 wallpaper space...
Anyone have some insight into what is going on here?
