huh? i coulda swore i heard him say no live wallpapers in the review... double checking ><


EDIT: yea was from the Cnet review my bad... quote from Cnet im an android noob fyi so i might have read it wrong

"You can even switch "Scenes" to customize another set of panels based on themes--such as work, play, travel, and social. Though the Aria supports the Leap screen that shows a thumbnail view of all your home screens, it does not offer live wallpapers"

It doesn't come with any preloaded (live wallpapers) but I'm sure once rooted or using aftermarket homescreen you could enable it.
When watching the video review of one of these recent ones I noticed that the wallpaper that was usually LIVE wasn't actually moving. It just looked like a static wallpaper.
