see Screen sizes in our wiki or look at the iPad descriptions also in our wiki. You should always look in our wiki before wasting time looking all over the net.

my apologies I guess I wasn't clear enough I'm referring to the WORKING content area. NOT the total screen size.

The working content area is the screen size. Some apps may not use the total screen. Are you talking about a particular app? If so you need to specify the app and you want to know how much is used up by the margins.

In Bluefire you can set the margins to 0 and use the whole display. I am not sure Bluefire supports animation. In iBooks on a book you are creating the pixel count is what matters. To do an animated fixed format book you will need to follow the rules laid down by Apple in their tool. There is a wiki page on fixed format ePub that shows how the Apple fixed layout works. The yellow submarine is a good example of this technology on iBooks. It is a free download.
