    Anyone know where to snag that wallpaper he is using in his review? It looks pretty clean behind the icons. :)

    Personally I thought it was an ill-chosen wallpaper for an official Engadget review, seeing as how 8-bit ends up being all jaggy.

    Don't get me wrong, I love 8-bit art, but if you're trying to show in hi-res photos how NOT pixellated the screen is, an 8-bit wallpaper in the background is going to make a less-educated user go, "Huh? I see pixels."

    It is a neat wallpaper though - I just thought he should've chosen something better for the photos.

    I personally think with the color variation and the 800:1 contrast ratio, it is vibrant and stands out. I would definitely enjoy some hi-res images. But Having a hard time finding some good ones I personally enjoy. :/

    it's not a stock wallpaper, he said in a seperate post (josh topolsky) recently that he likes to use Eboy pixel art as his backgrounds for phones.
