Give Your Android Phone Windows Phone 7 Look With X2K2 Tile Icons

X2K2 Tile Icons allows you give your Android phone a look pretty similar to Windows Phone 7 user interface. The credit for these WP7 like icons for Android goes to xero2002, senior XDA member and developer. The package so far contains 220 icons that pretty much cover all the native apps on your Android phone’s homescreen.

The icons are optimized for best performance on 800 x 400 screen resolution phones such as the Samsung Galaxy S. Apart from this, these icons will only work on homescreen setups that are 5-Rowed like ADW and LauncherPro. The package is so well configured and integrated that you won’t have to resize these icons and so far they work seamlessly with notification bar. In case you are planning to use the tiles without notification bar, then don’t do so. As according to the developer, the icon pack is supposed to work with notification bar only.

Here are the features of this WP7 like icon pack for Android Phones:
