Is the structure for blackberry-tablet.xml documented somewhere? I was thinking this is where I should look into if I want to change the default loading screen. Hope someone can shed some light on this.
Solved! Go to Solution.

you cannot change the look of loading page in any manner yet. its going to show up with every load. how ever what you are refering to is the blackberry-tablet.xml and through that you can change what category your application icon shows up in. here's the link to the page information on the XML document:
here's the structure of the blackberry-tablet.xml document:
<qnx> <initialWindow> <systemChrome>none</systemChrome> <transparent>true</transparent> </initialWindow> <publisher>Sample Inc.</publisher> <category>core.internet</category> <icon> <image>your_image.png</image> </icon> </qnx>

So I've been looking as well, and nothing is yielding any results... That link posted above only really talks about adding an icon... doesn't discuss any of the other nodes in the xml.
What are all the categories? What are all the initialWindow values possible? etc, etc. It'd be nice to have the answers here.

I believe the other nodes are the only ones we've been shown, other than the new splashscreen one that was added in the latest SDK.
As for the other categories, @taylortbb pulled them out of the first simulator's filesystem a while back.
And note that it's core.utils, not core.utilities.

@jffurlan, Wikipedia has your answer (first hit in Google).
Without further documentation on which environment variables may have any meaning to an AIR app, they likely have no particular value to us.

Just will need an AS3 version of getenv(...).
The blackberry-tablet.xml file appears to be generic, for all "entry point types" (i.e. AIR, Java, native, etc), so possibly environment variables will not be usable with AIR apps.
I can't quite think of anything they'd be useful for in this type of device, either, so long as they're packaged with the app itself.
