Microsoft may be promising 32-bit color support in its upcoming Mango update for Windows Phone 7, but some users already had sufficient chromatic depth -- at least until they unknowingly traded it for copy / paste. Word on the street is that HTC HD7 owners are noticing a significant drop in color depth after installing Microsoft's NoDo update, causing ugly color banding in (previously gorgeous) apps and photos. The big M, via a moderator on the Microsoft Support forums, has confirmed the phenomenon, stating that HTC launched the HD7 with color support outside of Windows Phone 7's 16-big design requirements. The update didn't remove a feature, it merely brought HTC devices in line with WP7 device requirements; to ensure "a stable and consistent customer experience," of course.
