Windows 7 Phones Jailbroken
While the first attempt at jailbreaking the windows 7 phones failed, Developer Julien Schapman is releasing a version to jailbreak the windows phones. Not a big fan of Windows phones as I think they'll become irrelevant with the popular emergence of Android Phones but I'm always a fan of hacking or "jailbreaking" phones to give you full access.
My first hacking experience was with the first XBox. Ever since then I've been hacking every device I can get my hands on. This includes my PSP, Xbox360, Iphone, and my HTC EVO is rooted.
One last point I want to make about Android phones VS Windows phone is that with my android phone, I'm able to do just about everything possible, leaving everything else on the shelf. Sure there will never be a replacement for sitting at your respective "battlestations" and doing whatever pleases you ie;world of warcraft, pron, or just plain old surfing, but it is pretty sweet to pull up an android phone and do some web surfing here and there. That's why I say windows phones will become irrelevant because there's nothing that differentiates them from android or apple. Apple will always have their hardcore followers until they see the light like I did. Windows phones are getting jailbroken again but does that make them relevant? We'll see.
