Australian developer Chris Walsh recently found a method to run so-called native code on the platform indicating that jailbreaking Windows Phone 7 could be possible, though it’s a first step in a huge process.
Same developer seems to have conquered another OS tower as he now tweeted that he’s got registry and file system access. The tweet also mentions that this was achieved on Samsung and HTC devices and the developer is committed to getting that on LG handsets too. Are these hacks device dependent? Normally they shouldn’t be but, as with the case of USB [...]
The FCC has cleared an HTC Windows Phone 7 CDMA device. The phone is likely to be the HTC 7 Pro which is the only CDMA Windows Phone 7 device from the Taiwanese manufacturer that has been revealed to date.
The FCC filing mentions specifics like Bluetooth +EDR and 802.11b/g/n WiFi. The HTC 7 Pro has a 3.6-inch 480 x 800 capacitive touchscreen, slide out QWERTY keyboard and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 1GHz processor.
The cellphone in the FCC documents is final production hardware; will this mean we will see a CDMA Windows Phone 7 device before 2011?

The US only HTC 7 Surround as well as the HTC 7 Pro rumored to arrive in Europe early 2011 have just made their appearance on HTC’s official YouTube channel with a First Look video for each of the two models.
The HTC 7 Surround video seems to focus on the sound – which is advertized to be massive thanks to the integrated slide-out boombox speakers – as well as the integrated kick-stand while the first look for the HTC 7 Pro – with the Sprint logo on it – seems to bring the slide-out QWERTY keyboard in the center of attention, with great impact on [...]
We’re still catching our breath from the whirlwind of news that swept across the smartphone plains yesterday in the form of Windows Phone 7 launch details, and we imagine that some of you are a little overwhelmed as well. Therefore we thought we’d recap all of our coverage for you in this handy guide, along with charts detailing specs of all the initial devices plus distribution plans broken down by country and carrier. We hope that you enjoyed our WP7 articles as much as we enjoyed bringing them to you, and we’d like to thank everyone for tuning in to Pocketnow for [...]
While yesterday we knew that the HTC 7 Pro – the slide-out QWERTY Windows Phone 7 – will be available exclusively for Sprint in the first half of 2011, today we are presented with interesting information related to European availability for the handset.
Engadget seems to have HTC’s confirmation that the Touch Pro2 successor running Microsoft’s latest and greatest will arrive to UK and the rest of Europe early next year, packing a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 512MB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage along with a 5MP camera with LED flash and a powerful [...]
So we think we may have solved the confusing web of codenames surrounding HTC’s Windows Phone 7 launch lineup. Although not all the pieces fit perfectly, we find the following scenario to be most likely. We’ll start with the easy ones and move on to less concrete associations.
1. HD7 = Shubert/Schubert
This one has been common knowledge for several days now, and many sources have already started to use the two names interchangeably.
2. 7 Mozart = Mozart
Sort of a no-brainer at first glance, but it bothers us that HTC would use the same branding [...]
For all of us who simply can’t live without a full fledged slide out QWERTY, you’ll be happy to know HTC has just unveiled their future HTC 7 Pro. Why Future? Well it seems it won’t be available until the first half of next year, and exclusively for Sprint.
It’s kind of weird to remember the old Touch Pro2 being available in just about every carrier in the US, and now seeing its successor only available on one carrier, but it seems that will be the name of the game.
Among specs, we find a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 512MB of RAM, 576MB of ROM and [...]
