Only Windows Phone phablets are getting a third Live Tile row, confirms Joe Belfiore

The Nokia 1520 was announced yesterday as the first Windows Phone capable of an additional, third row of Live Tiles, meaning you can fit much more content on one home screen and avoid scrolling.

If you have been wondering whether a smaller WP handset with the same high-res display will have three icon rows, the answer is no. Microsoft's Joe Belfiore confirmed that whether a Windows Phone will have three instead of two Live Tile rows is dependent on the screen size, not the resolution, to make for a more fulfilling experience on the large display real estate.
