I wish to create an favicon that will be displayed on the browser of version 5 and 6 of BlackBerry's. I have tried each of the 4 statements below.
<link rel="icon" href="./favicon.png" type="image/x-icon" />
<link rel="icon" type="image/png" href="./favicon.png" />
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.png">
<link rel="shortcut icon" type="image/gif" href="http://find.mobi/favicon.gif" />
All these work in Firefox. I have a favicon.png and a favicon.ico and a favicon.gif located in the root directory. However, this isn't working on the BlackBerry...
I am using a BlackBerry 9700 v184.108.40.2063 (Platform 220.127.116.11)
Does anyone have any ideas in how to create a favicon for a website for the blackberry?! I have been at it for the best part of today!
I checked the source code for http://m.cnn.com and I can't see how they created there favicon!
I have done a search of the forum and these two links below were my best results, but they didn't solve my problem.
Solved! Go to Solution.

According to your question, i expected that it's not about Blackberry Widget / Webworks Development (correct me if i'am wrong).
Now, using http://m.cnn.com as example, did you mean this??
If so, just try to access this : http://m.cnn.com/favicon.ico
There is the answer, just put an favicon.ico image file in the root of the web path.

Thank you for all your replies! The favicon finally worked when we moved to an Apache HTTP server from Tomcat. I am still not sure why this worked, but I am just glad it finally works!
@agungeddy: We had the favicon in the root webpath of our project. Without changing anything, once we moved to Apache HTTP webserver the favicon started to work! Thanks for getting that favicon from cnn!
