    Nova is perfect for tablets. Has more customization options than most other launchers but not so much for themes like Go Launcher. It goes great on a phone as well; the overall feel is like a slightly tweaked vanilla ICS.

    Haven't really gotten too deep into this one, but from what I've seen, it's pretty close to Nova but more ideal for smaller form factor devices.

    Another lightweight launcher that looks great and doesn't eat up all your RAM. Reminds me of LauncherPro but more themable and modern -- not quite as subtle.

    If minimal is your style, then LauncherPro is for you. Best for lower-end devices, but it goes good on anything really. Doesn't have quite as many features as Go Launcher or Nova, but definitely shines through in the way of elegance and simplicity.

    Probably the best launcher if you're constantly looking to change styles or mimic other mobile OSs. Huge range of themes available and pretty solid compatibility and support.
