We dig Honeycomb apps around these parts, and when they're done well we can't wait to tell you guys about them.  HD Widgets looks like it certainly fits that bill, offering up a set of great widgets for your Honeycomb tablet that take advantage of all that real estate and are pretty customizable as well.  There's a dozen different widget types, offering clocks, weather, settings switches, and a nice tablet header design that fills the wide screen on your tablet with all the information you're looking for. 

On the customization front, you can swipe through clocks, backgrounds, layouts, and other options during initial setup as well as on the fly.  Combined with all the different styles of widget available, you're sure to find a combo you like.  HD Widgets is now available for 99 cents in the Android Market, for devices running 3.0 or higher.  The fellows at cloud.tv say they will be releasing a version for phones in a few weeks, as well as new themes, new options, and "much more."  We've got the download link and a handful of screenshots after the break.

Great for those on stock Honeycomb, but not really better than Touchwiz's widgets and notification bar controls.

Is it just me who doesn't get the whole weather widget thing? What's the point of a widget that tells me what the weather is like? I have a perfectly good real life 'widget' that lets me know what the weather is like, it's called a window, it doesn't use up any screen space and it's always accurate.

Haha true. But...but...colors and moving things on the screen give such a tingly feeling and a smile. We can even back out and come back and it starts all over again! [derp- faced]

Yeah, but some of us can't see that approaching thunderstorm/tornado/whatever (not that we get those much in South-Central Texas lately) that's still 100 miles away when we look out our windows.

I didn't find the one with the android in it, but the original's were created by an artist on deviantART called submicron. His page is here:

Look for one of his wallpaper packs called Stasis. There's a couple of different colors. The artist has quite a few cool looking wallpapers.

Loving that long horizontal clock and weather combo. Will first need to see what newness is in BW. But this looks like a great second option.
