December Wallpaper Calendars

Smashing Magazine LogoContinuing the Christmas theme, Smashing Magazine have a bunch of unique festive wallpapers for your desktop and other backgrounds needs. Part of their regular monthly programme, the December wallpapers function as calendars too, with dates embedded in the wallpaper, which is pretty handy anyway – no need to start up an app to check the date.

All the heavy lifting has been done too with a range of resolutions for different monitors and desktop sizes – I use them as backgrounds on my tablet and smartphone. The only difficulty is choosing the best. I’ve included a few below but check out over 20 others at Smashing Magazine.

Android winter wallpaper released

Winter Wonderland!

Just a few days ago Google released a small set of holiday wallpapers, but now the holidays are almost past and the dark, cold days of winter stretch out ahead of those of us in the northern hemisphere — exception for Todd and his Hawaiian paradise. Now it is time to switch to a new winter wallpaper.

Thankfully, the folks over at Android Foundry have stepped up to the plate and pushed out a nice one. The image depicts two of the little green “men” playing in the snow, along with a snowman and pine trees as a background.

The image is free and comes in multiple sizes to fit pretty much every device.
