Copy & Paste Coming to WP7

Windows Phone 7’s critics have said that it’s lack of multitasking and copy/paste features made it inferior to the competition. IIRC, Apple and Android didn’t have those features on release (and actually took a while to implement). Well, Microsoft is releasing an update in Early 2011 that addresses these issues, and more.

Microsoft Director of Project Management for Microsoft Project, Arpan Shah, has incidentally revealed in his personal Microsoft blog that copy and paste for Windows Phone 7 “will be available as an update in a matter of weeks (early 2011)”. According to WPCentral the rest of the update is also expected to bring task manager/hub multi-tasking, turn-by-turn navigation, clipboard and SkyDrive support.
