Team ChevronWP7 — the ones behind the Windows Phone 7 unlocker and custom ringtone homebrew app — member Rafael Rivera reportedly discovered a Samsung device driver that would allow for taking screenshots on Windows Phone 7.
Just like with the case of Copy/Paste – hopefully to be fixed soon, the brand new Microsoft mobile platform does not allow users to take screenshots, at least for the moment. The device driver discovered on the Samsung Windows Phone 7 device allegedly allows for screen grabs to be taken but it’s yet unknown if it is working or not. It’s also unknown if it’s a Samsung specific driver or a generic one that could allow this feature on the rest of the devices in the current line-up. Whether we’ll see a homebrew app for taking screenshots is yet unknown so we’ll just have to wait and see what team ChevronWP7 (or Microsoft) is about to do to help us get proper screen grabs instead of taking pictures of our devices’ screens.
