I don't think so, yet at least. It would need to be rooted before you can change ROMs. There are, however, clocks and widgets that make it look more like that. There are custom homes though. Two good free ones I've found are Panda and Home++. I'm running Home++, which you can see in the pictures.

So I got my Phantomskin on friday and eventually got around to uploading the pictures of it. I like the skin, with two caveats. The coverage of the pieces is like 95% of the surface they are designed for. If you look in the pictures, the one for the screen has a gap at the bottom, only like 1mm though. The pieces around the corners really annoyed me because they don't seem to fit the contour. Those were a struggle to get to lie flat, and I didn't even bother with the screen bezel pieces, or the side pieces for the back. The second thing that sort of bothers me is the clarity of the screen cover. It isn't bad, but when you look closely there is a vertical grain to it. I can deal with it, because it isn't that noticeable and I'd rather not have a scratched screen. You can't even tell in the picture.

The first picture was right after I applied the screen cover. Even though I washed my hands there are fingerprints, but they have since gone away and are faintly visible only with the screen off. The battery cover seems easier to remove now, because I couldn't really get good friction with the rubberized texture.

Thanks for the update esocid.
I got My droid two weeks ago and have been considering a full fit skin vs. the standard screen protectors.
Best and most useful apps I have thus far...
Bubble
Calculator (scientific not the pre-package one)
Unit converter
Periodic table
craigsphone
weather channel
Pandora
Dealdroid
Power management

Also does anyone else agree that the few little bronze touches put this phone over the top as far as looks go?

yeah I like the bronze to, the phone definately has a quality feel to it, doesn't feel like a toy like so many phones do. I really do love this thing, My wife love's her's to.

I personally think the gold accents are ugly. I'm a silver person, although I never wear jewelry (besides in my septum, but it's steel/niobium), my college ring is silver. I was considering something I could do to alter the accents to silver, but that's too much trouble, so I've gotten used to it.

The Android Developer Challenge 2 winners were announced today. Just search for it, there are a couple good apps but I'm disappointed with ones that weren't chosen.

If anyone is looking for a good notepad, Melon, and Notes are two good ones. Melon is creative in how it manages notes, and has voice recognition, which I've found to be very accurate.

See, now if you'd have called it "the official Droid club" I could have played.

*looks down, wipes the tears from his Eris', and goes to another room*

I don't mind if you still play . How do you like your Eris? I thought I read something about it getting Eclair sometime soon.

Count me in. Got mine on launch day and its been fun. I really like the browser and the Youtube app. My co-workers still cant get over watching stuff in HD/HQ on a phone!

Im still stuck on getting a case for it. I had a very nice soft touch coated one for my Storm that covered the just the back, made by Incipio, and had the Best Skins Ever on the front. It was a very good setup. I have this one for it now. It alright but Im still hunting for something better. Seidio says they are making some DROID items but they are not ready yet.

I love it. The only thing that would cause a return would be a fast release of the passion/dragon. HTC's Sense UI's amazing and the portrait keyboard is great. It's a little slow, but nowhere near as buggy or unresponsive as my last phone. It's got a really nice feel and look to it.

Anyone having issues with their DROID not syncing facebook. I was under the impression that its supposed to sync automagicly. I have to go into the settings and sync the account to get the widget to update on the home screen. Basiclly the widget does not update very often if at all.
