Windows Way back in old and boring January of this year, Microsoft announced they would be working together with the Windows Phone 7 homebrew community, with the goal of creating a stable, supported way for homebrew developers and people interested in homebrew applications to enable side-loading on their WP7 devices.

This is great news for WP7 users, but if we were to compare WP7 unlocking and iOS jailbreaking there will be a great difference : iOS jaibreaking is free, WP7 unlocking will not be free, it depends on Chevron's fee amount the success of this solution.
