Android: emulating different screens

Putting this up for possible future personal reference. Here's three different emulator settings to test three different screen size/density combinations, as follows:

Low density: 120dpi; Skin: QVGA (320px*240px).
Medium density: 160dpi; Skin: HVGA (480px*320px).
High density: 240dpi; Skin: WGVA800 (800px*480px).

Note to self: the 'Q', 'H' and 'W' in QVGA etc stand for "Quarter", "Half-size" and "Wide" respectively, and VGA stands for "Video Graphics Array".
