We've seen leaked images of a Start screen with more live tiles, and it turns out all those rumors were true. Windows Phone 8 Update 3 (its official name) adds a new column and a few more rows to the Start screen, which Microsoft says will effectively double the number of tiles that can show up on the home screen.
There is a major caveat here though. Existing Windows Phone 8 devices will not get the extra column and rows. This feature will only show up in new, yet-to-be announced devices with screens that are 6 inches and larger. That makes the rumored phablet, code-named Bandit, that Nokia is supposedly building seem much more likely.
