GO Launcher Development Team Creates GO Launcher HD Beta For Android 3.0+ Tablets

One of the best launchers available is now available for Android 3.0+ tablets. The GO Launcher development team has developed an tablet-specific version called GO Launcher HD. While the launcher is currently in beta, there are some nifty highlights you can find in the launcher. For starters, there is the given ability to change your grid size in your various homescreens. Also, the launcher is incredibly fluid and smooth, which means transitions won’t be as choppy as some customized skins out there.

Although it’s currently in beta, GO Launcher HD is indeed available— though not in the Android Market at this time. If you fancy trying out having a new look to your homescreen, hit up the download link below. Don’t forget to let us know how it works out for you in the Comments section below or in our Forums.
