Windows Phone 7 hacked and explored

Hackers have managed to get their hands on the Windows Phone 7 ROM and have unearthed some interesting details about the upcoming smartphone platform from Microsoft.

The most notable inclusion in Windows Phone 7 is native support for the latest version of Microsoft Office.

Microsoft has allegedly integrated the ability to uninstall apps from the platform in the same way that you would from your home PC, although it is important to remember that the hackers have only got their hands on a rough build of Windows Phone 7 and so much could change before it is launched.

Members of the XDA developers forum managed to get their hands on the ROM and explored some of its secrets.

The indications are that although the current interface is a little basic, there is some promise in what Microsoft is proposing.

Microsoft is going to be working on Windows Phone 7 until the end of 2010 and it looks likely that we will have to wait until 2011 for the first smartphones to use the platform.
