No Copy/Paste On Windows Phone 7


Not this again. We’ve seen this controversy play out on the iPhone, Android, and now it’s arrived at Windows Phone 7’s doorstep: there will be no copy and paste for Windows Phone 7 on launch. That’s the word out of MIX 10. Eeks.

What’s worse is that I’m not sure copy and paste will ever come, and if it does, it will be begrudgingly. Several sources across the web have been asking Microsoft directly about copy and paste functionality and you’d be surprised at the responses. I’m not sure if they’re trying to soften the blow they could get from a no copy and paste backlash or whether they truly believe it, but Microsoft execs are sticking to their guns that people don’t need or want copy and paste on their mobile device. That is why it won’t be on Windows Phone 7.

Shennanigans! I’m guessing the community will complain enough that things will break down and they’ll add the feature.

On your mark. Get set. Complain.
