Third Live Tile column on Windows Phone 8 GDR3 is only for 1080p phablets
Yesterday, Microsoft detailed some of the upcoming features of the GDR3 update for Windows Phone. We were looking at both hardware (1080p resolution, large screen support, Snapdragon 800 SoC support) and software changes that will start coming in effect soon.
The third Live Tile column has generated discussions regarding its availability. Apparently, according to Joe Belfiore, the third column will only be available on 1080p screen display-enabled phablets. Furthermore, Belfiore also mentioned “all the other related UI changes throughout OS”, which will be available for the same devices exclusively. Will 1080p phablets get phablet specific features within the OS? We’ll let you know more as soon as we find out.
