    Hate the background. Add a VERY subtle dropshadow to the text and icon and they'll pop regardless of the background. That's what iOS does and it's quite effective. Otherwise the icons themselves are an improvement.
    I prefer Rim to go unique with this, just do their own thing and make it work

    I noticed the text message icons in the leaked photo are rounded whereas in the "New" icons photo they are still squared off. I like the new rounded ones best.

    I like the icons except the Text Messages and Browser icons. I do like that grey box/frame that people are complaining about.

    Not from what I've seen on my wife's iPhone. She has some really wild backgrounds with a lot of contrast, and it not only obliterates the icon labels (the drop shadows don't help a bit), but also overwhelms the icons themselves sometimes.

    Not that it's impossible to read or make out, but it can be distracting to just use it.

    It appears the new text message icon will be rounded.
