I'm running into a problem where a web page looks fine on a BlackBerry but only uses part of the screen width on a Droid. I'm testing with the emulator 2.0 AVD, but the problem was reported by someone who has a physical Droid. I then debugged away until I wound up with very little. I have what looks like the bare bones web page to me. As you can see in the attached screenshot, the Droid only uses about a third of the screen width. Any ideas why? Or what I can do about it?

Found the solution. I actually found it because the iPhone has the same problem. As described here, setting the default viewport width aligns what you see with what gets rendered.
