Looking for a launcher with certain qualitites...

So, I am working on a stripped, rooted 2.2.2 (nothing special, just a modded version of 2.2.2) and I have set the LCD density to 120. In the dell stage UI, designed specifically for 480x800 at 160dpi, it doesn't work too well.

I am looking for a launcher that will adapt the widget and application rows and columns to an appropriate number based on screen density, has a good UI (preferably Honeycomb or a 3D UI) and is well-polished, something people would use as an everyday UI. Any ideas?

Try LauncherPro, there is a free version. It has the ability to change the number of rows and columns.

You may have tried it, but I know that with LauncherPro you can choose 5 or 6 columns or rows of icons.

I'm not sure how it works when you modify the dpi.

Zeam Launcher is my new favourite. You can set your rows/columns, as well. Smooth and quick, and I rarely get redraws (when I do, they render very quickly).

I've been hearing good stuff about those launchers, especially LaucnherPro. I'll look into them :)

VTL Launcher
I use VTL on my tablets. You can select the numbers of rows and columns to make widgets and icons fit to you liking.

The other beauty is that you can have up to 3 dock bars (left, right and bottom). You can vary the size, thickness, of these dock bars as well. This can be used to fine tune the spacing of widgets/icons.

You can also lock the desktop so once you have it the way you want it so nothing get dragged out of place.

No free version, but it's cheap. It's worth a look.
