Real simple board game using ImageViews: how to layout on Android?

view story

http://stackoverflow.com – I have an iOS version of a real simple board game here. It's a 2D grid displayed with isometric view. It is based purely on UIKit, meaning the graphics are drawn using UIImage and UIImageView. No need for OpenGL or any other more sophisticated graphics frameworks. Performance is just fine. I'd like to port it over to Android. My idea was to simply convert it to use ImageView and position them absolute. But then I read that AbsoluteLayout is deprecated (for a good reason, the screen sizes vary too much). But how can I then position my views? In my case, I will have to take care of proper sizin (HowTos)
