    We may need the Nokia firmware for that feature to work.

    I said may. Since GDR3 hasn't changed the tiles on my home screen, I can only assume that the change requires a firmware update from Nokia.

    Wrong wrong and wrong. Guys, this is a PRE-RELEASE.. Not all the features are on this OS. The idea of this release is to help devs with the apps they are building. The Microsoft developers are still working on things and, as some leaked pics show, the official OS release will brings an extra medium tile to L920 and devices with same screen resolution.
    Really looking forward to getting the official OS. :)

    Yeah, well, compared to the iPhone every WP8 device is a "large screen". :D

    I was kinda curious if I would even want smaller/more tiles on my phone anyway. I think the size of the current small tiles look just right on my 1020.

    1020 didn't get it either (unless I'm missing something, but pretty sure I am not).

    That's because wp8 res could not get higher, doesnt mean that the screen cant handle it.
    That like watching an 240p youtube video on your hd high res tv and saying that 800x600 is the max res

    Didn't WPcentral say that 1280 X 768 (928) would be able to run it ?

    Crap, I was looking forward to this, more games on the front screen with out having to scroll up and down for 30 seconds...

    There is definitely not a reputable website that claimed the 920 had a 1080p screen... That was the whole point of gdr3 anyways. Before that Windows phone didn't even support 1080p.

    Although I'm sad my 928 won't get it, I was looking forward to that :(

    I watched a ton of video's before i purchased my 920 [came from iOS]in the beginning of may/july.
    But still i think 720p screens could handle 6 columns

    I'm struggling to understand why anyone would find this desirable. That screenshot looks like a cluttered mess.

    My big worry is when 1080p resolutions start showing up on smaller screen sizes and we're stuck with this barrage of tiles. I can appreciate giving people choices, as long as I have the option to preserve the current look. I don't need the kind of information overload I'm seeing with these bigger screens.

    Come on, folks, think about it...Developers aren't being asked to support a new tile size. That would indicate that the actual dimensions of the tiles will remain the same.

    On a 720p device, the Start screen width is apportioned as follows:
    15px left margin
    336px left tile
    18px inter-tile gap
    336px right tile
    15px right margin
    -------- -----------------
    720px total width

    If you throw another 18px gap and another 336px tile, you get 1,074px. Simply increase the left and right margins to match the 18px inter-tile gaps and you have 1,080 with no scaling and no new tile size.

    Introducing a new tile size puts load on developers. Introducing scaling has the potential to make existing tiles, particularly ones based on imagery, look slightly soft or blurry.

    A third tile will remain the domain of devices with 1,080 horizontal pixels. I'd bet that it's likely that that resolution won't be used for devices smaller than 5" diagonal both because that's what Microsoft has consistently said and because having six touch targets on a screen that's 62mm wide results in objects just 10.3mm across without gaps -- and that's already bordering on the 9mm minimum set forth of MS's design guidelines. (It violates those guidelines when you factor in the 2mm gaps that MS wants between touch targets. Apple also wants a minimum of about 7mm for touch targets.)
