    Has anyone had as many problems with finding a wallpaper that would coincide with the a500's resolution as I have had? No matter what I try it just seems to either blur the image too much or just doesn't fit at all. I even tried xoom wallpapers and they don't work. :confused::confused:

    Honeycomb has a weird way of handling added wallpapers. I use the app HD Wallpapers and most of their stuff fits and looks better than average

    I just downloaded Multipicture Live Wallpaper and it works amazing.

    Cool! The live wallpapers will drain the battery a tad faster but they look amazing on 10" screens!

    I just use one picture so it won't drain that much. You can choose wether or not to use a live one.

    Part of it has to do with the resolution of the pictures used in the wallpaper apps. I struggled with same issue as you -- everything I tried made the tablet desktop look horrendous. Finally found a picture in an app called "tablet wallpaper." A lot (or most?) of the pictures aren't REALLY optimized for tablets and will still look blurry--just like all the other wallpapers apps--but I found a few high res ones that worked and look great. That's why I'm thinking it's about resolution
