I'm pretty sure it will. 2007 was the first year they started using that newer style radio, and I think it went unchanged until the Cobalt was discontinued.

I think it will work too cause I seen on another forum where a guy took a 09 radio and installed it in a 07 he just had to get the dealer to program it

Yeah, they're set up to not work on a different VIN (or something like) that to discourage theft. The dealer can re-program the radio to work on a new VIN. If it's unlocked like yours, then I'm relatively certain that it'll work. Worst case scenario, you wire everything together, it doesn't work, you take it to a dealer to have them re-program it.

If it says it is unlocked it will work immediately when you put it in, you will not need to go to the dealer to disarm the theft deterrent module because it will not see an intruder.

I read somewhere about the 2010 radio being on a high speed bus

Yeah, it has GMLan High speed but don't worry about that if it's unlocked, because signal will flow right through the radio and onto all the other CPUs.
