    Hey Guys!

    This is one of my first posts on WPCentral! I've been following through threads at a distance for a while now. I've actually been an iPhone user since the initial release in 2007. However, I went to a Windows Phone 7 launch party a couple weeks ago in NYC for their new HTC/Samsung Mango devices and was immediately compelled to switch over to WP7. Seriously. After being immersed in the Microsoft ecosystem with my Xbox 360, test-driving Windows 8, reading multiple reviews on Engadget and The Verge regarding what Microsoft is trying to do with social integration and the Metro UI, and having a friend who has walked me through how awesome the OS is, I wanna be on this thing. I hope there's some room in the family.

    Below are my submissions. Not actually having a Windows Phone, I had to scout around a bit to see what was displayed on it and if light or dark backgrounds were best. I think I got it. The first link is to the wallpapers in their actual environment. Following are the individual wallpapers by themselves.

    :lol: Hope y'all enjoy!
    Welcome to the Windows Phone family & WPCentral. We won't hold your past indiscretions against you! ;-)

    Nice designs, maybe you'll have that WP7 you lack soon enough.

    Good luck!

    Hello everyone,

    First post! I've seen some fantastic entries so far and some not so fantastic ones :)

    Anyway, I've been coming to WP-Central for a while to get my WP7 fix I'm still on Android 2.3 though - coming from iOS land - And WP promises to be the best of all worlds as it gets wider adoption.

    Here are my entries, Quite simple in appearance but you'd think to look deeper if I told you how much time I spent on some. :)

    I had fun making these so it's a win-win :)

    How do I post to show the images?
    You have to put the URL of your images inside image tags syang87. (Your 2 wallpapers would look like below)



    (Remove the dots inside the tags) Hope that helps. :)

    As a daily reader I am always browsing the site and forums and decided I'd give this a go. Whether one wins or not I hope everyone enjoys them.

    Thanks, I am always reading and had made a bunch of WP7 wallpapers when WP7 was released and decided this would be a good time to do a few more. That and not owning a WP7 device this would be an awesome opportunity! :)

    Embossed Blue

    Embossed Red

    Embossed Green

    Well that's my final minimalistic efforts for the competition.

    All the official Mango colours are contained in the Zip file.


    They are all identical to the 3 wallpapers above. :)

    I really thought I was done, but I was sitting in my office last night & I caught a glimpse of one of my favorite design books & just thought it worked with Metro.

    Here is my homage to "Making & Breaking the Grid" by Timithoy Samara.

    Man, I hate you guys! The ones I made I think are really good. They look fantastic on the phones. So I was really hopeful I was going to get the phone, but man, there are some amazing ones here now! ARGH! I still hope I win, but it is not as likely now!

    Oh yours are as good as everyone elses enahs555, It's not the winning, it's the taking part.

    (Although winning a Focus S would be rather nice too. LOL)

    There are some lovely wallpapers in here now for sure.

    Good luck enahs555, and eveyone else too of course. :)

    I know this thread will be soon closed.
    But still I am brain storming.

    By the way I am now trying something that doesn't follow Metro principle but still looks OK. Hope you like them.

    This one is android galaxy nexus style for wpcentral.
