I think it's easier to just replace the favicon.ico file in the theme, then, ftp all the other ico and tile files into the site root. I believe that the devices will check the site root for the various size files. You can see this in your error log or 404's in AWstats. This way you don't need to add any meta tags to the template.

Generate your ico and tile set using iconogen.com for example from a 200x200 square jpg logo, download the zip, its a free service!

If anyone has success or failure with this please reply to update the idea.
