DPI of a PDA screen


Pixels-per-inch, also dots-per-inch or DPI, is a measure of the resolution of a computer screen, in terms of how many pixels can be fitted along a horizontal or vertical line of the screen one inch in length. The higher the DPI, the smaller the pixels will be. PC screens are typically considered to be 96 DPI.
