Splashscreen size?

I've looked around about splashscreens, and people suggest that they should be 1280 x 768 pixels in size.

 

But shouldnt they be 1280 x 720 pixels? As the release device is slightly smaller than the dev device?

first touch device from january-launch will be 1280x768 ... later in 2013 other touch devices will all have 1280 x 720, but not the first one
