Google officially announced Android 5.0 last week and along with it came a new developer preview. Included in that preview are a slew of pretty new wallpapers for your phone-decorating pleasure.


The Zune Home Screen

Let’s be honest. While it was a bit late to the multimedia party, the Zune product family was doing the minimalist, authentically digital thing before it was cool. If you fancy a bit of nostalgia for those days, this Zune-inspired home screen (dubbed Xune) is for you.
