Microsoft’s WP7 Team welcomes Geohot and friends on their platform

1 min read

Geohot, the guy who hacked the iPhone and most recently the PS3 has found an unlikely ally in their fight to hack anything they can find.

Just moments after Geohot mentioned that they are planning on going out to get a Windows Phone 7 to try and hack they received a tweet from Brandon Watson, Director of the Windows Phone 7 team welcoming them to the platform and donating a brand new WP7 to them so that they can get started right away.

It’s an obvious cheap shot against the iPhone but it’s a good one so good on them.

I just hope for their sake that Geohot doesn’t crack it wide open and destroy any chance they had of ever making money from their app store.
