HTC gave up on a big-screen Windows Phone for the lack of Full HD display support

HTC gave up on a big-screen Windows Phone for the lack of Full HD display support
HTC has apparently been planning to take the big screen fight onto the Windows Phone 8 turf, which might explain why its current HTC 8X flagship there was outed with a "just" 4.3" display.

The company has reportedly been planning to inject WP8 into something like the Droid DNA chassis, which sports 5" Full HD screen, but Microsoft dropped the ball on 1080 screens support in Windows Phone 8, which currently only goes up to 720 horizontal resolution, reports Bloomberg.

The Taiwanese decided that a big-screen WP8 device thus won't be competitive against the upcoming Full HD 5-inchers that Android makers have in the pipeline, and scrapped its plans for such a device altogether.
