So I have recently started to design layouts for smart phones, clearly it is a different world from web design. One thing that struck me was the resolution/pixel density seems to vary depending on the handset in question ranging from 150 to 300 ppi. While looking around I could not find any one source of data for a mix of handsets so I thought I would start at list. If I miss any (and I will) than please feel free to add to the comments section
