ChevronWP7 team sells 10 000 Windows Phone Unlock tokens, runs out
The popular ChevronWP7 team, which is behind the Developer Unlock tokens for Windows Phone, has sold 10 000 of them for $9 apiece already.
That's the whole batch that got authorized by Microsoft
, and the guys are apparently thinking of ordering more due to this popular demand.
Unfortunately that means now you either have to get the official developer kit from Redmond for $99, or install some of the unofficial ROMs in order to unlock your Windows Phone device and gain all the benefits.
Installing custom Windows Phone firmware is not for the faint of heart, though, and requires a great deal of affinity for tinkering with your handset. Hopefully Microsoft will authorize some more tokens for the ChevronWP7 guys, as $90 000 worth of sales definitely shows a healthy interest in the unlock tool.
