Developing for Android Tablet

I wrote about learning to build android applications and as I now own an android tablet I have started to learn about optimizing the application for tablet as well.
I think the basic idea is same for the apps but the interface which we design for phones doesn't look good on tablet at all. I ran a few apps on my HTC Flyer tablet which have interfaces built only for phones and I must say it sucks. Everyone with an application on android market should get an interface update for tablets as the tablet market share is increasing and you may loose a large percentage of user by not having a properly optimized tablet interface.
Designing interfaces for tablet is much more interesting than designing for phones as you have more space to use and you get freedom to place components your own way.
Will keep you updated about my progress.
