Show Device Type and Icon

description

Need to figure out a good way of auto detecting the type of Peer Device that is connected and show an Icon appropriate for that type of device instead of just an icon of a computer. For example: iPod Touch, iPhone, Zune, Phone, etc.
 
This can probably be worked out using the MAC Address since manufacturers are assigned their own unique prefix. If the prefix used for certain devices were known, then the device type could be automatically detected.

Done - It doesn't auto-detect the device type, since that can't really be done. Instead, the user can select a specific Icon so display for each connected peer.

For now, we'll need to just add UI to customize the Icon to be displayed for the device from a predefined list of icons within the application.
