Can Android 2.2 OS support multiple display screens?

 Everything I have read so far points to the OS not yet being coded to
support multiple display screens ( http://developer.android.com/guide/ 
practices/screens_support.html).

The reason I am inquiring is because some of the devices that support
Android 2.2 (like Motorola Atrix 4G) have native support for XenApp or
RDP client.

Microsoft Remote Desktop client (Version 6.0 and up) supports spanning
across multiple monitors. Also Xen App Server (version 6.0 and up)
allows a Citrix Multi-Monitor ICA session to act like native windows
workstations using Multi-Monitor configurations.

Since Android 2.0 the ability to connect an android device to an
external display (monitor/projector) through a HDMI or similar port
has been available. Multiple displays would be the next natural
evolution I think in bridging the gap between android devices and
netbooks or tablets as a mobility solution. The hardware is almost
there, right now it seems to be just an OS limitation.

Cursors cannot be sorted. You would have to read the data out of the
Cursor, sort it, and store the results somewhere (ArrayList of POJOs,
MatrixCursor, etc.).
