The Display class will give you the height and width of the screen.

 

HomeScreen gives you the preferred size of the icon, and also allows you to update the icon.

Re: Help me !Application Icon Problem.

In my application I do:

 

String device = DeviceInfo.getDeviceName();// eg 8330. ... if (device.substring(0, 2).equals("87")){ ... } else if (device.substring(0, 2).equals("83")){ ... } else if (device.substring(0, 2).equals("90")){ ... } ...

 

And set the images, distances between buttons, etc. based on the model.  That way you don't have to write code to figure it all out.

 

Also, no doubt you've seen this:
