How can I limit which device can download my app?

Like tab's only? Or devices with 640x480 or under are not supported?

I know there is some way to do this in Play, but how?

Did you try looking for help on the Google Developer's site?

This is the sort of thing that is done there, not something done in your code anywhere. (I suppose you know that already, but it never hurts to state the obvious, just in case.)

Actually I found the help for this:

http://developer.android.com/google/play/filters.html

So it cannot be done in Developers site, but in the xml-files. I have no idea how to set the filters though.

Depends on what you want to filter on.

I don't think you can specify tablets only (are there Android desktop computers?).

Explore the page you pointed me to. It has links for examples and such for each feature that is filterable.

While it lets you filter on screen size (small,normal,large,xlarge), it does not seem to let you specify width/height in pixels.

Look at the AndroidManifest.xml file in the interpreter_android directory while you browse the developer page. That will help you figure out what you need.

If you are using the TGC AppGameKit on-line one-click apk creator, I don't know how you add features to the AndroidManifest.xml file they use to create the apk.

This page shows the pixel sizes associated (loosely) with the screen sizes.

A quick Google search will also supply you with this handy page:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Android_devices
I've used it to determine the most common display sizes for me to optimize my game to.
Unfortunately Google doesn't let you block devices with displays less than x by y pixels.
So, you can use this list to quickly find those devices, it might not find all of them, but you'll have tried.
