This will put frame-width and frame-height in the mode line:

(defvar my-frame-size-mode t)

(defun my-frame-size-mode (arg)
  "Toggle Frame Size mode.
With arg, turn Frame Size mode on iff arg is positive.  When
Frame Size mode is enabled, the frame's width and height appear
in the mode line."
  (interactive "P")
  (setq my-frame-size-mode
        (if (null arg) (not my-frame-size-mode)
          (> (prefix-numeric-value arg) 0)))
  (force-mode-line-update))

(setq mode-line-position
      (append mode-line-position
              '((my-frame-size-mode
                 (:eval (concat " W" (number-to-string
                                      (frame-parameter nil 'width))
                                " H" (number-to-string
                                      (frame-parameter nil 'height))))))))
