Actual Galaxy Tab Displays Different Than Emulator - 5x5 Widgets?

I created a Galaxy Tab emulator using these instructions: 

When I install my 4x2 widget on the emulator it displays like it does
on a phone (full width, half the height). However I went to try it out
on an actual device in Best Buy and there it displayed as if there is
room for a 5th row and column. First of all, why is there this
discrepancy? Second, how would I create a 5x5 widget?

Thank you,

Their SDK add-on may not replace the stock Android emulator home
screen app with their own. I have not tried making a Galaxy Tab
emulator AVD.

You can try specifying a suitable dimension in your app widget
metadata that would calculate to 5x5 cells.
