Why does my TV support 1080i but not 1080p

Last week i was wondering what the difference between 1080p and 1080i was. I found out that they are essentially the same resolution of 1920 by 1080 but they refresh the pixels differently. Now I have a tv from around 2006 or so, wich support 1080i input but not 1080p, why? It supports 720p so it doesnt has to be interlaced. And seeing as it supports 1080i input its also able of drawing 1920 by 1080 pixels on the screen. Does anyone know why my tv doesnt support 1080p?
