Battlefield 3 Android Home Screen

In the spirit of Battlefield 3's release today (in North America, at least), I put together a custom Android home screen to mark the occasion. I literally just received my preorder copy at the door as I'm writing this (release-day shipping from Amazon ain't too shabby). Spooky...

The greenish-blue probably doesn't match in-game colors, but I thought that it looked nice with the minimal white and black. The background is the Operation Metro wallpaper that was released with some others a short while ago. I forget where I got it from, but it can be be easily found by searching for "Battlefield 3 Operation Metro wallpaper" or something like that. The whole thing was put together rather quickly and simply, but I think it turned out pretty well. It would definitely look even better if I took the time to make more of the pieces myself. Maybe I'll repost an updated version this weekend if I have the time.

Here's a quick list of supplies needed to deploy this:

All of the apps and widgets listed above are free, with the exception of Beautiful Widgets (which is $2.89 on the Android Market). I think it's definitely worth the purchase, but if you're so inclined, you can get it for free from GetJar. Although it wasn't intentional, I thought it was kind of cool how I ended up using "metro" style icons with an Operation Metro wallpaper.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to get some things done so I can justify playing some Battlefield 3 tonight.
