The commonly accepted meaning you suggest must be used in the context of comparing the same sized screen or the word "resolution" is being used incorrectly.
The definition I have provided has been used for centuries and continues to be used throughout science right to this day.
Your reference supports my statements; right out of the wiki info: "Note that the use of the word resolution here is a misnomer, though common. The term “display resolution” is usually used to mean pixel dimensions, the number of pixels in each dimension (e.g., 1920×1200), which does not tell anything about the resolution of the display on which the image is actually formed".... this is entirely my point!
Sorry to belabor the point, but with some educational qualifications in the science of optics, it bugs me when I read tech review after review get it wrong - as Mossberg did.
