“Large-screened” Windows Phone 8 handsets with Update 3 will be able to have more dense start screens with more information on it, irrespective of the screen resolution.
The above screen shot, tweeted by Nazwil, of an internal build of Lumia Black, shows that the small icons are not actually that small on the 4.5 inch screen of the Nokia Lumia 920, and does suggest to us that there would be no real issue in using the updated start screen on our existing phones.
We know from earlier leaks that the setting is controlled by only one registry key, and we know Microsoft and Nokia are relatively responsive to pressure.
The only question which remains therefore is whether we want such a dense screen on our phones.
Let us know by voting in our poll below.
