Anyone care to shed some insight on loading screens for our playbook applications? Right now, I know that there is a RIM default that appears when starting the application. I'd like to opt for something a bit more custom.

We did add some more loading screen logic in the latest release of the WebWorks SDK for PlayBook. You can find some more documentation here for the loading screen element:
Also note that there is a known issue with the release for loading screens..
If you enable a loading screen without specifying a transition effect, the loading screen does not disappear after loading and the BlackBerry WebWorks application does not start properly. (DT1110864)
Workaround: In the config.xml file, specify a transition effect for the loading screen.
