ChevronWP7 Will Not Work On Next Version Of Windows® Phone 7

Microsoft is contemplating of blocking ChevronWP7 which permitted customers to unlock any sort of retails device of Windows Phone 7 (WP7) for side loading of application defying the payment criterion of 99 dollar per year for the marketplace account of WP7. The update will introduce the copy and paste features among other improvements. As per ChevronWP7 team, Chevron WP7 unlocking mechanism is still being used as it has already been discarded and they are quite aware of the fact. However, this has been tactfully communicated earlier, they will like to reiterate that Microsoft has briefed them about the coding error utilized in the ChevronWP7 unlocking will seize to act after the updating of Windows Phone 7 as announced officially at CES 2011.

After its release ChevronWP7 was not continued more than a week. The developers of ChevronWP7 were asked by Brandon Watson, director of Windows Phone 7, in the department of Developer Experience and took decision for destroying their application. Microsoft has made changes in the developer tools with regards Windows Phone 7, paste functionality and adding copy, improvement in application performance, and implementation for other enhancements. The update comprises reference assemblies, Windows Phone OS emulator image which is a new type of version and all sorts of improvements in connection with previous updates. One may download it directly from Windows Phone Developer Tools January 2011 Update. The update is in respect of developers only and it allows them to start making the apps with assemblies of undated nature which will be shipped in the next update for Windows Phone 7 for consumers.

All applications those are already on the Windows Phone Marketplace will obviously still be working on the WP7 gadgets which becomes updated for the new type of versions in respect of OS and any application built by using this new sort of version for the tools will also be workable on the phones which have not got the upcoming update of WP7. Most of the applications will not be resubmitted or recompiled.

Evolve III Maestro tablet

The Evolve III Maestro tablet computer was displayed at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2011. It will be launched with an Oak Trail CPU and also add MeeGo as its operating system. The buzz surrounding the tablet is that the tablet weighs only 900 grams and offers a battery backup of 8 hours on the Windows 7 operating system and 16 hours on the Android operating system.

It features a 10.1-inch capacitive touchscreen with a display resolution of 1024X600 pixels. The tablet has 2GB of DDR3 RAM, up to 32 GB of solid state hard disk, 3G and 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi connectivity, and 2 USB ports. The Evolve III Maestro is the world’s first tablet booting on Android, Windows 7 and MeeGo. This is something that has led developers to sit up and take notice. A UI drawing its strength from the two operating systems will be a user friendly device with innovations.

The Oak Trail platform is based on the system on a chip architecture for tablet computers. Intel takes pride in its idle state energy conservation and how in comparison to other platforms it is a competitive choice. Intel’s Oak Trail is marketed to rival companies using ARM based architecture and to gain a hold of the tablet market. ARM platform is currently a leader based on its low power consumption on a specific sized unit like the tablet. The Evolve III Maestro is the one of the first tablets showcasing Oak Trail and is power packed with multiple platforms and would be a much awaited release.

A range of processors and hardware be it NVIDIA or Tegra or QualComm, Snapdragon, Intel Extreme,  AMD, Dual Core processors, Quad Core processors, and a host of new powerful devices, have been introduced.

The Android 3.0 platform – the Honeycomb has been specifically designed with large 7 and 10 inch tablets in mind. Although manufacturers like HTC are using the Gingerbread and other proprietary solutions jointly, to bring about the kind of performance to match the iPads or RIM Pads and probably even better it, the combinations of hardware and OS and performing apps on the same, are going to set the rules in the market.

The MWC 2011 also saw the massive growth of apps, app developers, carriers and operators and a host of related problems like revenue sharing, OS updation, standardization, mobile security, and many more areas.
