We have a pop dialog in our desktop solution where you need to select values from 2 dropdowns and click OK.

Now I want a similar thing for our Android solution.

I'm not sure because in case of Android it will open a dialog on top of a dialog while selecting values from "Spinners".

Will this violate some design guidelines, or is there a better display this?

This shows many dropdowns on a normal page (activity). In my case the layout itself is a dialog box, so my question was will it make sense to open another dialog box (showing the list of options), on top of a dialog box. – carora3 Feb 21 '12 at 13:34
