Windows Phone 7 can run native code. Until today, it was believed that third-party WP7 apps could only be written in Silverlight. The ability to jailbreak Microsoft's latest mobile operating system may come sooner than you think.
a jailbroken phone also means more people will develop apps. it will get a lot more people interested on the platform. more apps will probably attract more buyers. more buyers=more money. so having the jailbreak is good news right?
IDK that apps can only be written in silver light (till now). I reaqlly enjoyed making little programs for my HP iPaq 110. I used Visual Basic.Net to create neat little apps. Sad to see that I won't be able to easily make any apps for the new Win Phone 7
Its the same as the Apple SDK only... it is only controled in the software. The hardware can run native code if you get passed the software blocks. But it still stands that when you start downloading software that almost anyone can right, you own personal security is more in danger. We have less tools to determine what our phones are doing then on our desktop machines. These are new times for security threats if you don't have strong technical skills, and even then...
