In WP8, Microsoft got rid of the right side vertical gutter, thus allocating more space for the Live Tiles. However, there is still an unused black gutter at the top just - underneath the clock area and between the first row of Live Tiles. I was looking at the Lumia 920 and it just stands out more (at least to me) because of the larger screen size. So I looked at the Samsung Focus and realized that it was present even with WP7 devices. Does anyone know what this black bar of nothingness is for? Is it a placeholder for future functionality? Is it just for design? Future Notification pull down area? Is it currently being used in WP8?

It matches the gutter at the bottom (not counting the little arrow) so you know you are at the top of the page. Could be smaller, I guess. Ask Joe Belfiore why they chose that exact amount of space and you'll probably get a subjective answer."Bro, you know I lift cause I use a Lumia 920..."
