Widths to use in media queries

What are the best widths to use media queries to target portrait and landscape page orientations on different devices? Are there any standards?

I'm looking everywhere for the best answer for this. Here what I found.

@media (min-width:320px) { /* smartphones, iPhone, portrait 480x320 phones */ }
@media (min-width:481px) { /* portrait e-readers (Nook/Kindle), smaller tablets @ 600 or @ 640 wide. */ }
@media (min-width:641px) { /* portrait tablets, portrait iPad, landscape e-readers, landscape 800x480 or 854x480 phones */ }
@media (min-width:961px) { /* tablet, landscape iPad, lo-res laptops ands desktops */ }
@media (min-width:1025px) { /* big landscape tablets, laptops, and desktops */ }
@media (min-width:1281px) { /* hi-res laptops and desktops */ }

I think this is better considering with mobile first approach. Start from mobile style sheet and then apply media queries relevant for other devices. Thanks for @ryanve. Here is the link.
