Windows Phone 7 Marketplace Glitch Allows XAP Package Download: Viewable Application Source Code For All

Windows Phone 7 Marketplace Glitch Allows XAP Package Download: Viewable Application Source Code For All

At this very moment, it is possible for any Joe Schmo to go over to Microsoft's server and download all of Windows Phone 7 XAP application packages without the need of a WP7 device or Zune Desktop software. This is possible because Zune software uses ATOM XML feed to grab application info, so it's just a matter of diving into the code to find the XAP package address and download it directly. Once you've got the XAP package of an application, you can simply unzip it and have your way with all of that app's assets and resources - including the source code of the app with the use of Reflector (a debugger for lots of nasty projects.)

Microsoft KIN gets second chance on Verizon

Microsoft KIN gets second chance on Verizon

Microsoft's KIN was arguably scuppered by Verizon's insistence on pairing the starter-smartphone with a mandatory full-price data plan; customers weren't convinced, and the KIN ONE and KIN TWO were pulled from shelves in July.

Windows Phone 7 Launches – Can it Compete?

Windows Phone 7 Launches – Can it Compete?

Today Microsoft officially launched Windows Phone 7 along with its handset and carrier partners. Microsoft has had success with its Windows Mobile products in the past with enterprise customers but has failed to achieve any significant traction with Windows Mobile in the consumer’s space. Windows Phone 7 is the culmination of over two years of resources and work on Microsoft’s behalf and may be their last chance to make any significant consumer inroads.

Last Friday Google’s Android creator Andy Rubin made a statement in an interview claiming that the world didn’t need another mobile platform. What I found interesting about his statement was that he has forgotten that the company he currently works for (Google) was started at a time when many in the industry said there was no need for another search engine. In the technology industry there is always room for innovation. The real question is whether Windows Phone 7 is innovative enough to keep Microsoft in the mobile game. Read on for further analysis.

Samsung confirm Windows Phone 7 plans, surprise nobody

Samsung confirm Windows Phone 7 plans, surprise nobody

It comes as almost less of a surprise than Microsoft's confirmation that all UK carriers would be offering Windows Phone 7 devices, but Samsung has made the nowhere-near-shocking announcement that they will, indeed, be offering handsets running the new smartphone OS.  Nice of them to let us know, but since we've already seen the Samsung Omnia 7 in the wild, the whole thing is a little redundant.
