Arpan Shah, who leads Product Management for Microsoft Project, mentioned something about copy and paste in his blog:
Critics have commented on the lack of specific features like copy & paste and lack of 100s of thousands of applications. And while both are true, copy & paste will be available as an update in a matter of weeks (early 2011) and as for applications, it’s just a matter of time. Developing Windows Phone 7 apps is as easy as developing any .NET/Silverlight application. In fact, I’m developing a Poker Calculator Windows mobile app right now on my free time that I’m looking to publish in the next few weeks. I’ll blog when it’s complete!
Let’s repeat that: a matter of weeks. It’s not going to take long for us to see copy and paste brought to Windows Phone 7. You’ll barely have time to smudge the screen before it lands.
