Mobile SDK was donated.  Current Flash Player always reports 72dpi on
desktop.  I think that might change in some future player.  I've been
wondering if there is a cheap way to get it from the HTML wrapper.

applicationDPI is purposefully in buckets and not exact.  That is supposed
to make it easier to design your UI than to have to worry about the wide
variety of densities in mobile screens, but I was in the camp to make the
actual density available for CSS media queries and let you define your own
