GeoHot Has a New Project

George “GeoHot” Hotz, the famous hacker who first jailbroken the iPhone, or more importantly the person who is being sued by Sony because he released homebrew tool and root key to the PS3, now has a new project that he is working on. Sources say that GeoHot has recently got his sight set on jailbreaking the new Window phone 7 platform. Now what can we do with a jailbroken Window 7 phone? I personally have no idea. I guess we will just have to wait and see what GeoHot can offer us.

Microsoft developer platform product management head Brandon Watson, after receiving Hotz’s intent on the product, twitted this : “#geohot if you want to build cool stuff on #wp7, send me email and the team will give you a phone – let dev creativity flourish #wp7dev” It’s nice to see that not everyone responds to jailbreaking and hacking with hostility, much like google.

#geohot if you want to build cool stuff on #wp7, send me email and the team will give you a phone – let dev creativity flourish #wp7dev
