ideally, i would like to design my application's icon to reflect that of the default icon and perhaps that of the stock BlackBerry applications that will come bundled on the PlayBook.
this is a long shot, but is there a template available of the transparent cube (see attachment) that developers may use as a base/canvas for their application icons?
Solved! Go to Solution.

i remember hearing something about them providing a PSD file for the icon template in either one of the webcasts or an adobe max presentation. but im curious as to whether or not this is going to happen and when its going to happen as well. hopefully someone from RIM could update us.

Mimicking the look of the icons shouldn't be too hard, but what would be very nice is to have some apps already in the simulator! Currently there are no other apps to see how their icons look.

Looking at this image:
it seems there's no consistency, other than some of the icons being a box. Even the ones that are a box don't have similar transparency.

sure. i have seen these images and realized they're not all transparent. it would be just as useful to have access to a non-transparent cube that would include the drop shadow rather than having to "fake" it.

I've had a heck of a time getting the icon ( of my choice ) to work so I have just been using an icon that I created and renaming it to: blackberry-tablet-default-icon.png and placing it in my sdks/blackberry-tablet-sdk-0.9.1/samples/icons folder. Before you do this make sure you backup the original before just overwriting it.
Then when I run my command line Install it selects the default icon and installs it with what it thinks is the default... though it is my icon. I am fairly sure a fair amount of others are doing the same thing, unless they have actually gotten the icon part to work.
Oh, and for the record the default icon that is provided with the SDK is: 90 x 90 pixels.
