Arpan Shah reveals WP7 copy ETA in blog

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.

Windows Phone 7 has had mixed early reviews, which have praised Microsoft for adopting a different approach to its mobile phone interface, but have criticized it for omitting standard features such as copy and paste and multitasking. Given Shah's relatively senior position within Microsoft, it appears that these particular criticisms will soon become moot.

    re: copy and paste

    I recall Ballmer laughing at Apple for not having copy and paste for the iphone but now I guess it's ok if Micro$oft doesn't have it ready for the O-phone aka phone 7.
