Nice start on this build! Looking forward to your next version.
I'm sure you're aware of most of the shortcomings, but in case I saw something that you've missed, here's what I observed:
1. The People module distorts the photos; too wide (or too short
2. Three nonstandard widgets that I tried were too small on the screen, SMSRobot Analog Clocks, Smooth Calendar and Palmary Weather Pro. There seems to be a general proportion issue with nonstandard widgets.
3. The HTC Calendar widget won't install. Tried all versions. The Android Calendar was extremely slow to load the full calendar.
Thanks again for your efforts.
