Models and Resolutions

[ Edited ]

Is there an updated official document that lists every single BlackBerry model that has ever existed, and its screen resolution?


Please, when the new BlackBerry 10 API's are finalized, can there please be a way to read the hardware's resolution and normal aspect?  Display.getWidth() and getHeight() do not return this, they will return whichever way the device is currently turned, -and- will return different aspect and resolution if the virtual keyboard is up or not.


edit: Here's what I've compiled from scrounging around the web looking for specs:

If there's an updated official document, someone please point me to it -- I was unable to find what I was looking for in the developer resources.


Thank you...

It's not updated with all models, and wikis aren't always accurate.


There was an official knowledge-base page about this in the past, but I seem to remember it being outdated, and can't find it now.
