 Hi ,

We have ported Android on our Devolopment Board and are able to do the
Web Browsing .
We have 2 WVGA screens on our Devolopment Board . We wanted to know
if  it possible for us to use the second screen when using  the web
browser to display large web pages .
(Usually we scroll down , but we want to display it on the 2nd screen
as much as possible )

Any hints or suggestion in this regard would be really appreciated .
