imageA new post has come from the Chevron team that mostly just says they’re optimistic about the future an they’re covered by an NDA but here’s the most intriguing part:

In the meantime, a forthcoming Windows Phone 7 update will fix a bug that the ChevronWP7 unlocker tool took advantage of; the tool will cease to work thereafter.

To fill this short-term gap, we’re collaborating with Microsoft on an interim solution that will continue to support homebrew developments after the update. We will share details of this when it has been finalized.

I read that to suggest that after the WP7 update MS will permit some version of access to WP7 devices that will be permissible/authorized. What do you make of it?

Anyway, here’s the Chevron release in full:

A first step in the right direction

After two full days of meetings with various members of the Windows Phone 7 team we couldn’t wait to share with everyone the results of those discussions.

Although a large majority of the content presented by Microsoft is covered by a non-disclosure agreement (NDA), which we voluntarily agreed to, we can say we’re genuinely excited by many of the forward-looking presentations. We can only hope these features come to fruition as soon as possible.

To address our goals of homebrew support on Windows Phone 7, we discussed why we think it’s important, the groups of people it affects, its direct and indirect benefits and how to manage any risks.

With that in mind, we will work with Microsoft towards long-term solutions that support mutual goals of broadening access to the platform while protecting intellectual property and ensuring platform security.

In the meantime, a forthcoming Windows Phone 7 update will fix a bug that the ChevronWP7 unlocker tool took advantage of; the tool will cease to work thereafter.

To fill this short-term gap, we’re collaborating with Microsoft on an interim solution that will continue to support homebrew developments after the update. We will share details of this when it has been finalized.

In summary, we appreciate Microsoft’s outreach, genuine interest and involvement in this matter and we hope the community can understand we’re working towards a win-win scenario.

    A new Samsung App has been added to the Marketplace on 1/20 called Photo Studio. It’s not on the Samsung App list yet, but if you click on more apps from Samsung Electronics then it will show up.
