An Android version for tablets is not launch yet. But you can use the same SDK which is used for Phone like 2.0, 2.1, 2.2

The SDK used is the same; you can change the screen size/density of the AVD to emulate a Tablet.
Honeycomb might have this support by default.

what is "Honeycomb"? I know to change size but the bigger size is the tablet PC size, or needed bigger size? if indeed needed bigger size, is any other plug-in?

Honeycomb is next version of Android SDK i.e 3.0 But it is not release yet. Google says that it is specially for tablets of various screen size.

Yes, you will have to either upgrade your existing Eclipse and Android SDK to Android SDK 3.0, or install a new one once the 3.0 SDK comes out. For the Android SDK< an in-place update from the command line is probably the best - do not update from the GUI because the GUI locks files that the update tries to replace (actually, that is probably only an issue on Windows). For Eclipse, I recommend reinstalling Eclipse and adding the Android plugins to that (I have never had good luck with updating existing Eclipse with new plugin levels).
