Default Cool desktop icons to represent your PDA

<a href="http://www.mobigeeks.com/pages.php?page=XP++icon-sets%3A">http://www.mobigeeks.com/pages.php?page=XP++icon-sets%3A</a><br /><br />Want to replace the boring folder icons for your PPC's My Documents folder? You can do this in all versions of Windows for your ActiveSync My Documents shortcut on your desktop, and XP lets you change the actual icon in Explorer. The folks over at MobiGeeks have a few cool ones for you. First, Jornada 56x and Toshiba Genio 570.<br /><br /><A><img src="http://www.mobigeeks.com/photosnews4/ico2.jpg" /></A><br /><A><img src="http://www.mobigeeks.com/photosnews4/ico.jpg" /></A><br /><br />I understand icons for iPAQ's and other PPC's are on the way.
