A while back we got a glimpse at the black and white HTC 8S with matching live tiles and theme. There was question whether this was a special HTC tile color, a special theme for the 8S, or something baked into WP8. Thanks to some recent hands-on reported by AreaMobile we can see that this is indeed a WP8 feature.
The feature is called “high contrast mode and can be accessed in the ease of access settings. The details say ” Changes the colors for some features, and hides some of their background images.” So it’s not really a fashion setting as much as a “help you read stuff” setting. Still, it looks pretty cool.
