Sorry, but let's pretend I'm a complete moron and I don't understand anything at all about anything. How does the fact that it wasn't hacked and exploited (namely because no one bothered) a demonstration of its security? Here are some things you didn't consider:
1. They get to keep what they hack; it's possible that no one wanted a Windows Phone.
2. Android has proven to be, at the very least, vulnerable, and it wasn't hacked either.
3. Apple's stuff is the stuff they all go for first.
Let me guess. This is all because Windows Phone 7 is so much more solid? Or is it because no one has seen or used one? Or is it because no one wants one?
There's no basis whatsoever for the conclusion that it wasn't hacked because it's more secure. The only conclusion you can draw, based on the facts, is that no one bothered.
I'd frankly find that more embarrassing than WP7 getting hacked if I were Microsoft.
