There is something about the default N900 wallpapers that makes the device come alive, the inherent freshness is indeed refreshing. Since Nokia’s touch devices also have fairly large screens (with a slightly lower resolution), I figured it would be a good idea to load these up on my N97 and I am glad to say it did look good.
The S60 5th Edition software automatically resizes the picture to fit the image in the landscape mode and it crops out a part of the image to make it look good in portrait. So if you like what you see, take a pick from one of these wallpapers (full size uploads on flickr) or simply click here to download the entire set in one go.

Yesterday we told you about Maemo.org’s Maemo 5 application page going live and today brings even more good news. Maemo Select, a section on Nokia’s Maemo site that highlights the best applications, themes and wallpapers for Maemo 5 (read N900) has gone live today with a few more apps.
Maemo Select will cover applications from the Maemo Community as well as the Ovi Store. Yes, the Ovi Store. The Ovi Store is coming to the N900 by the end of the year and will feature both free and paid applications. Currently the theme and wallpaper section on Maemo Select is empty but you can expect it to fill up pretty soon. On the app front, downloads are already available for the Amazon Widget, Evernote, Bounce Evolution, Documents to Go and for the Facebook widget amongst others. Fring and Mauku (the Maemo micro-blogging client) will also soon be available for download. Check them out.
However, if you are looking for N900 wallpapers right now, N900Wallpapers.com is definitely worth a look.
