What is the default resolution of a wallpaper that fits the homescreen exactly in an Android phone?

I want to be able to design my own Wallpaper for my Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0. I have read on various websites what the resolution is via pixels, when I try to design for these resolutions i have to "crop" my picture and once I "crop" it, it looks blurry as if it set the quality lower as well.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0": http://www.samsung.com/global/microsite/galaxytab2/7.0/index.html?type=find

Resolutions:

  • 1024px x 600px

  • 640px x 480px

So, I guess my main question is. What is the correct resolution for this device? Why is it cropping all my images, even if they are set at 640px x 480px?

This is not an exact duplicate, as Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) does not behave as described in either @KenB's answer or the article referenced .. –  david6 Oct 18 '12 at 19:29

The screen size is 600 x 1024 pixels in portrait mode. That's not the same as the wallpaper size, since the wallpaper is bigger than a single screen (try scrolling your homescreens left and right to see this).

Usually you need to double the width, and from what I can see online this seems to be the case for the Tab as well. So use 1200 x 1024.
