How many different icons do you need designed?

1 single Icon design that will be used as the main application launcher. It will need to scale up and down to fit 4 sizes as described below.

3 sizes for on phone use: 72x72, 48x48, and 36x36. But the icon will need to scale up to 512x512 for use in the Android Marketplace (which is often viewed on PCs)
