Microsoft to Meet with ChevronWP7 Team Next Week

You may have heard about the ChevronWP7 team and how they’ve been able to unlock certain parts of Windows Phone 7 for sideloading applications without using the Windows Phone 7 marketplace. Brandon Watson of Microsoft recently tweeted that he is looking forward to meeting with the ChevronWP7 team next week. We knew that they were communicating, but didn’t know a meeting had been scheduled. We don’t know exactly what the meeting is about, but Brandon goes on to mention that the community they represent is important to Microsoft. The hole that the ChevronWP7 tool takes advantage of will be blocked in the upcoming update to Windows Phone 7, but Microsoft is clearly taking a different approach to the hack as we assume they’re meeting with the developers in order to discuss making it easier to develop great applications for the platform without having to resort to illegal hacks.
