Oh nonsense. I hope you're not designing sites I ever want to view on my TV or desktop.
The iPhone 4 is 960 x 640 px, FullHD is 1920 x 1080 px.
Had I said FullHD, and not HD, you might have had a point , but I didn't , so you don't :)
There is a generation of under 20 year olds who live around their mobile devices,phones,pads, tabs etc non of which have the definition we do on our monitors, they do not create things with these devices, they talk to each other and they consume what has been created by those of us with monitors..and who work with those monitors as opposed to use them merely to access the web from our chairs.
They are the vast majority, they are who I make websites for..you probably don't surf with all browsers at max screen..so those sites also work for you;-) the percentage of mobile device share of the web has doubled in just the last 12 months, IMO it will continue to do so and will accelerate to the point where the average person will no longer use "monitors" to access the web within the next 5 to 10 years..because they want to be able to access all of that from wherever they are..they do not want to have to be at home and sat in a chair to do so.
I will be retired by the time some people realise the error in thinking that their visitors think, consume,surf, navigate websites, purchase and communicate as they themselves do.
Webmasters are not my market, nor are they Google's, Apple's, Yahoo's, Bing's or facebook's..and all of those are focusing on "the mobile experience" to interact with their target market...because that market is huge and will get bigger faster, whereas the webmaster market is small in comparison, and will get smaller in comparison.
