It probably comes as some surprise to a lot of people, but I’m not what you would call the classic “early adopter” of gadgets. I mean hey, I’ve NEVER owned a smart phone of any kind, and it’s only taken me a matter of months to finally take the plunge and put in an order for a brand spanking new iPhone 4!!!
Choosing to ride out the whole “Antenna-Gate” beat up, the original plan was to hang out and wait for the mythical white version of Apple’s top selling “life-in-your-sweaty-palm” gadget, but it seems they are still having ongoing issues with paint or something. I couldn’t wait any longer, so I took the plunge and should receive my very own iPhone within 2 weeks!
To celebrate my “exciting for me, but probably not so much for you” purchase, I wanted to share with you a great site for some pretty slick illustrated iPhone wallpapers. Created by one of my absolute favourite vector illustrators, Ricardo Gimenes, creator of cult website “Behind the Websites”, these colourful creations are available from a nifty side-scrolling site you can find here: http://ricardogimenes.com/wallpaper/.
Listed below are just a few of the cool wallpapers you can grab for your own gadget. Click on any of them to be taken to the Wallpaper site.
Expect a number of iPhone specific posts covering wallpapers, apps and more in the coming months on both on this site, and also my Tumblr micro-blog.
