We can create logos and have iOS and Android recognize these by using

<link rel="apple-touch-icon-precomposed" href="image.png" />

Is there a way to create a logo and include it so that it can be used in Windows Phone as well?

The apple-touch-icon and apple-touch-icon-precomposed are quasi-variants of the favicon concept.

There doesn't appear to be any Windows Mobile-specific equivalent at this time.

Not for Windows Phone, but Windows 7 does support pinned sites, which is similar in concept and just uses the favicon. –  Lèse majesté Jan 26 '12 at 18:21
(I don't have an emulator to test on at this workstation) but I was going to guess that it pulls the favicon. One plus is that you can use a decently-sized image for favicons, and aren't necessarily restricted to the antiquated 32x32 favicon.ico files :) –  msanford Jan 26 '12 at 18:23
