This is a one-stop shopping thread I created on several of the sister forums to help you create that minimalist look that you may be after. All sorts of text icons, widgets, and general minimalist's goodies to create that "less is more" look that you are after.
Feel free to reply with any that I may have forgot and I will add them to the post.
NOTE: Not all apps may be optimized for Honeycomb so there may be some that may not work yet.
