There is no built-in view to do this. From a design point of view, it is encouraged to build your application so it only has to scroll one way because it is a better user experience. So I would suggest you attempt to modify your design to present your data in one screen either wide, or one screen tall, so you only need to scroll one way (and use the views that work that way.)

That can't always work, obviously. If you find yourself in need of two way scrolling:
1) You could nest a ScrollView in a HorizontalScrollView, but this leads to poor UX (no diagonal movement, hard to predict which scroll view will do the scrolling, etc...)
2) You could use a custom implementation that takes care of all the above. The one I see referenced most often is this: http://blog.gorges.us/2010/06/android-two-dimensional-scrollview/ but I have never used it.
