HTC kills big-screen Windows Phone over resolution restriction say insiders

HTC kills big-screen Windows Phone over resolution restriction say insiders

HTC has reportedly axed plans for a big-screen Windows Phone 8 handset to counter the DROID DNA, after deciding that the maximum screen resolution limits of Microsoft's smartphone OS would leave it uncompetitive. The original plan had been to match the Android-based DNA with a roughly 5-inch Windows Phone 8 device, Bloomberg reports, eventually axed since WP8 supports only up to 720p resolution rather than 1080p.

DROID DNA Review

DROID DNA Review

HTC has gone all out with the DROID DNA, and it pays dividends: the new Verizon exclusive breaks records with its 1080p display, putting HTC back into the limelight with a legitimate flagship. A Full HD screen, 4G LTE, and a quadcore S4 Pro chipset tick the spec boxes more comprehensively than we've ever seen before, though big displays and fast processors do make us worry when the battery is non-removable. Has HTC redeemed itself with the best Android phone on the market, or are the DROID DNA's ambitions simply ahead of their time? Read on for the full SlashGear review.
