> Thanks for the clarification. Is there an online calculator that gives the optimal size of a pixel (or the DPI) given the viewing distance?

Not really, but it is a common assumption that you hold a cell phone
at around 60% of arms length: 96 / 0.60 = 160 DPI, though larger
tablets (around 10") are probably held a bit further away (around
70%).

Cheers
Kenneth
