SameerH from Kobo stated that figure too in his post here, and I've read some posts discussing the Kindle Touch and how the firmware for it has support for the features of the new Kindle Paperwhite including "1024x758, 212 dpi display". I haven't a clue if it's a typo or if it's correct and people are just 'fixing' it to the standard 768. Does it really matter?
It is 758. eInk screens are cut from larger 'sheets' and the 'non-standardness' is due to 758 being a higher-yielding cut for eInk to make.

It's a bit confusing as we can see, but the bottom line is there are more pixels on the page leading to crisper and sharper text.

That in combination with all of our other Glo features: ComfortLight, TypeGenius and hand-tuned fonts, makes this the best eReader experience in the world in our opinion. But don't take my word for it
