Windows Phone 7 soon getting cut, copy and paste

Windows Phone 7 soon getting cut, copy and paste
The young Windows Phone 7 operating system is maturing in front of our very eyes with word of a February 7 update that will carry with it the capabilities of cut, copy and paste.

Given that the latest and greatest mobile platform from Microsoft is only a tad bit over two months old, news of this update is impressive. Yes, many will argue that the OS should have included this functionality out of the gate if Microsoft will really be updating the WP7 devices already. However, don’t forget how long it took the likes of Apple’s iOS to include the feature.

Adding to the goodness is word that the update will also up the performance of all WP7 devices. Here is another little factoid that may interest you. The update is being codenamed “no donuts,” or “nodo” for short. Is that a shot at Android? Quite possibly, but who knows.

Microsoft has made it clear that they mean business with Windows Phone 7. This update will hit phones right around the time the OS turns three months of age. Tell us what you think in the comments below.

Ready for the CDMA devices. Sprint please. Glad it's getting an update but the wait to get a device is horrible.

I love Windows Phone 7! So awesome! Had an iPhone before, it was cool. I like this better though.

I hear windows 7 phones cant have custom ringtones or is it just for the Focus? If so that should be 1st on the list of updates. Nobody likes at&t ringtones

It's true they don't have custom ringtones, copy/paste, multitasking, no flash, the list goes on. Windows phone is ok but it's really lacking lots of stuff that should've been included.

Hm, when you go through the different sources of this information, I can tell you that the date of the Feb 7th is pretty random and fake. But we'll see.

Really cut copy and paste how about a flash player or better yet the platform update with it?
