Xperia Play is GeoHot’s next target

His current PS3-hacking case against Sony is not even finished yet, and already George Hotz is already planning something up his sleeve. Needless to say, we're pretty sure Sony won't be all too pleased to hear about this one. Moreso if GeoHot, as he's more famously known, actually pursues it.
As revealed over at his official blog, GeoHot is now targeting the up and coming PlayStation Phone, the Xperia Play, for his next hacking adventures. But to be able to pull that off, he's going to need your help.
Yes, he's asking for donations. No, he's not asking for funds so he can find the resources to pull off this next stunt. Rather, he's pooling in funds so he can be ready for the legal expenses that is sure to come his way.
That's your ForeSight 101 lesson for your, right there.
So proclaimed GeoHot on his new blog:
"In fact, I want the opposite reputation set, that the more a company tries to abuse the legal system, the harder we rally back. I will be the first person in line on the launch date of the Xperia Play, and itching to get my hands on the Next GEOHOT Project."
There's a bit of asnag to this wonderful plan of his, though. The Xperia Play is officially labeled as a smartphone. By US standards, jailbreaking is allowed for smartphones. Therefore, although Sony might be itching to get their hands on GeoHot, it's not likely that a lawsuit against him will indeed come to success.
That's one less worry for GeoHot then. Guess he won't be needing those funds for "future legal expenses", after all. Oh wait, then again, he's still going through one, so maybe he can still put your donations to good use.
