Official: copy-paste coming to Windows Phone 7 next month - read the full textMicrosoft had other things to say at MWC this year, apart from the new partnership with Nokia. It seems the copy and paste functionality is coming to Windows Phone 7 owners next month via a "major update". We didn't get much further details on this update, though. But Andy Lees, President of...

This multitasking is not very inexpressive the only real multitasking I saw was the music app. And just having music running in the background is real multitasking. But lets wait and see maybe more will come.

it is so dire that every new OS has less and less of the original features - copy-paste are fundamental functions of WP6.5 ond every old version before that should never have been omitted... do MS not learn the only reasons people stuck with them rather than get an iphone was practical functionality for business users, but then they went and lost it all themselves!

Winmo7 is crap,

No system-wide file manager
No videocalling
Limited third-party apps availability
No Bluetooth file transfers
No USB mass storage mode
No multitasking
No copy/paste
Too dependent on Zune software for computer file management and syncing
No music player equalisers
No Flash or Silverlight support in the web browser
No sign of free Bing maps Navigation so far
No DivX/XviD video support
No internet tethering support
New ringtones available only through the Marketplace
Swapping memory card requires hard reset; cards not readable by computer
No customisation

i thinks its good that microsoft has taken this step....because copy paste is the basic step that an OS should have and i think microsoft and nokia is a deadly combination.........and they will definitely do good in near future....

Guys it's OK, Apple did the same thing back in 2007 when the 1st iPhone came out Apple had better way to develop their phones instead of locking 10 smart well crafted developers in one lap to come up with something new they released the 1st iPhone with a lot of shortage in features and thanks to the developers worldwide they got involve in developing iOS they didn't just come up with the basic features they did it in better unique way... the same thing with WP7 MO want to get the developers attention to their phones

so it's just matter of time (not very long i hope) to see WP7 phones packing all the basics features and even more

Have Good Day Guys
