    LOL one could say that is a problem. But choice is never a bad thing. Just a shame not everyone gets the same choice.

    One of the reasons I have never had a real opinion on what I like or don't like about iOS is I have never used a device from the family. I got to use an iPhone 4 and iPad 3 while I was out of town this weekend. As well as helping someone with their black berry 9930 which I have never used that platform before either.

    Choice is amazing. It's that simple. Android has so much of it, it's insane.

    I'll just leave my current tablet setup, featuring a new live wallpaper, custom clock and custom theme. No particular reason...

    That was kinda the idea for the icons, on the tab that is. I like it though since its either that or tiny little icons like the iPad.

    Wow, that looks good. Is that a launcher, or a custom ROM?

    It uses Desktop Visualizer. It acts as a widget, the widget launches the app and you set an image to represent the app. It works pretty good but has a couple issues.

    A. If the widgets are reset (as in a wipe/factory reset) then it must be rebuilt.
    B. Most screens need custom made widgets, there are stock ones but all those are ones I made.

    Ahh, that sounds awesome. I'm still using the launcher / theme I have shown above. I only change it on rare occasion. Haven't even had much time lately to just goof around with the tablet :S
