Submission + - Windows 7 Phone Gets Jailbreak Tool (

An anonymous reader writes: Developers have released a “jailbreak” tool for Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7, allowing the handsets to run any application, not just those approved for distribution through Microsoft’s Marketplace.

although reminiscent of jailbreak tools for the iPhone, this tool, called ChevronWP7, addresses a feature missing in Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7. It allows corporations to develop proprietary applications and install them on users’ handsets without the need to first place the application on Marketplace, as is currently required by Microsoft.
