Default App Design Dimensions

I'm wanting to start designing my apps, but I found documents regarding different densities and sizes etc...

So my question is, what size(s) do I need to design my app's UI and Icon to be able to fit all screens/devices... or at least the majority?

Thanks.. but I've already read over that. I was more looking for someone who actually designs app UIs and would know more specific numbers. Cuz really that doesn't say.

You can always have different AVD for the different screen size. Also you want to look into .9patch for your icons and stuff. Its located in your android sdk under the tools folder.

To find sizes for UI's it's fairly simple, I'm sure you could just simply google phones depending on what size the screens are.

3.2in = 320x480 (Optimus S/V)

Hopefully that was somewhat what you were looking for, when I make my apps I work off of the average 3.2in screen size, generally the app will autoscale and stretch itself, or if you build it for a standard 4.0 Jelly, it will assume it's building for screen sizes above 3.2 which are for phones like the galaxy, etc.
