    Is it possible to put video wallpaper on the pre? I youtube'd video wallpaper and there were several cool clips with iphones (i know) with video wallpaper. Regardless of the drain on the battery it seems like a cool feature.

    Might someone be working on an app for that?

    That does sound nifty. Would an animated image work for wallpaper?

    I'm assuming it would work, but gif's are very low detail image formats so it would look horrible with a high enough resolution. (ie a modern smartphone screen resolution)

    Huh? A gif image can be whatever resolution you want to make it.

    It's not like the device itself is fast, you want something to slow it down even more?

    The video wallpaper on youtube was actual movie files not jpeg, png, gif. We won't know about performance it until it is actually on the pre. Seems most of the iphone ppl ussed vwallpaper from cydia.

    My 3 year old samsung can do videos and gif. I know it would be a battery drain and slow everything down a little bit, but the option would be awesome.

    I think it would be cool to have the feature where a double tap on the wall paper does something. Like opens an app, or the launcher or maybe a homepage or something. Just a thought.

    I can think of no faster way to kill the battery... short of driving a nail through it...

    I would not recommend GIF. That format should of died a decade ago. Perhaps Animated PNG. Like GIF, though, it appears webOS doesn't animate it.

    its been a few months since this topic was discussed. i've been wondering for a while if/when we'd see animated wallpapers on the pre.
    yeah, i know battery drain, etc. who cares, its awesome! and on top of that, i use my pre in my work truck its on the charger the whole day.

    so has anyone made any progress on animated wallpapers? any rumors?
