    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 :)

    Bye!

    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)

    [img.]http://forums.windowscentral.com/attachments/general-discussion/19927d1324536984-wp-dark-wallpaper-08.jpg[/img.]

    [img.]http://forums.windowscentral.com/attachments/general-discussion/19928d1324536994-wphighway-wallpaper.jpg[/img.]

    (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 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.
