Any graphical editor which can produce an alpha-channeled png. Gimp,
Photoshop, whatever, you choose.

 Thanks for the insight, Pavel.  I was looking to duplicate look and
feel of the Android home page icons not just a bunch of icon pixels.

The folks at

 http://www.glyfx.com/index.html 

have some tools, some free icons and considerable expertise in this
area.

Cheers, Scott

 We've created our "Android" icons using Inkscape.  http://www.inkscape.org/ 

Have a look at some icons here:  http://www.openintents.org/en/ 
for OI Flashlight, OI Shopping list, OI News Reader, and OI Notepad.
(you have to scroll down a bit to see the new SDK 1.0 look icons).

 Those look nice; are the .svg versions available for use as examples/
templates?

 You can find the .svg versions of the OI icons here:

 http://code.google.com/p/openintents/source/browse/ #svn/images/icons_sdk1

Note that we have not specified the license yet, and were thinking of
some Creative Commons license.
Any advice or suggestion in this direction would be welcome.

1. Speech to text not working behind corporate firewall

I've noticed that speech to text only works on cellular or WiFi connections
not behind corporate firewalls. I'm guessing it uses non-standard ports of
some kind? Anyone else seen this?

2. Opengl Texture working on Emulator but not on HTC HERO

In my application, I have a NDK native code that uses OpenGL 1.0 to
apply a texture to a rectangle in order to draw an image on the
screen. It is working fine on the emulator, but when I test it on the
HTC HERO android device, it only draws a white rectangle without
texture. Anybody else had the same problem? Did anybody find a
solution?

Here is how I initialize openGL in native code:
        GLint crop[4] = { 0, 144, 176, -144 };
        glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0);
        glTexParameteriv(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_CROP_RECT_OES, crop);
        glTexParameterx(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MAG_FILTER, GL_LINEAR);
        glTexParameterx(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MIN_FILTER, GL_LINEAR);
        glTexParameterx(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_WRAP_S, GL_CLAMP_TO_EDGE);
        glTexParameterx(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_WRAP_T, GL_CLAMP_TO_EDGE);
        glTexEnvx(GL_TEXTURE_ENV, GL_TEXTURE_ENV_MODE, GL_REPLACE);
        glEnable(GL_TEXTURE_2D);
        glColor4f(1,1,1,1);

And here is how I draw the frame in native code:
        glClear(GL_COLOR_BUFFER_BIT);
        glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, GL_RGB, w, h, 0, GL_RGB,
GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE, pixels);
        glDrawTexiOES(0, 0, 0, w, h);
