New features for Windows Phone 8 GDR3 reportedly revealed; due in the coming months

While many handsets are just now getting Windows Phone 8 OS build 10327 aka GDR2, it has been known for a while that GDR3 was due not too long thereafter, filling in another gap between Windows Phone 8 and Windows Phone 8.1 Like GDR2, GDR3 will not bring many new major features but rather lots of smaller improvements, driven by new hardware requirements. Those plans include devices with...

On the horizon: Visual Studio 2013 reveals 1080P Windows Phone 8 emulator files

Windows Phone 8 is reportedly set to go to “full HD” with a 1080x1920 resolution later this year, an update that will come with the GDR3 OS refresh presumably for OEMs. Now, Justin Angel, who used to work with Microsoft and Nokia, has managed to dig up some emulator files for Windows Phone that coincidentally support that 1080P resolution.

HTC reportedly cancels large-screened Windows Phone amid resolution issues

HTC reportedly cancels large-screened Windows Phone amid resolution issues

Such is the case with Windows Phone 8 and the ability to now have 720P and 763x1280 resolutions.
