Future supported screen sizes and resolutions

I'd love to get some information about the screen sizes Android is
planning to support in future, and what that might look like.  I'm
particularly interested in larger screens, like 8"-10" WVGA.

I see the roadmap says:

      Beyond Q1 2009 ... Support for WVGA and QVGA

but what kind of support is that?  If this is still phone-oriented,
then I might expect support for 3"-4" WVGA, with the existing UI -- so
the contacts list, for example, would still be a single column.  My
project is for a system with a larger screen, about 8"-10", and it
really needs a different UI layout to look good -- the contacts list
with one column but two rows per entry looks poor in the wide screen.
A two-column view would be much better.  Also more items per screen,
as my touch area is much larger.


* Will Android support this?  IOW will the standard apps have layouts
tailored to this kind of screen?
* Roughly when would that be?

 At the moment the target is to support screens with a physical size

Dear all,

Is there a way to view app memory usage, threads on Nexus One while in
authoring mode? Is it even supported since I am not sure Nexus One is
a dev phone or not.
