Yesterday we heard Windows Phone 7 Series phones won't do multitasking at launch, and today we read at Engadget that the new mobile operating system won't support copy and paste functionality either.
We just super-double-ultra-plus-confirmed this with Microsoft -- Windows Phone 7 Series will not have copy and paste functionality. There is a data-detection service built into the text-handling API that will recognize phone numbers and addresses, but Microsoft says most users, including Office users, don't really need clipboard functionality. We... respectfully disagree? Sure, let's leave it at that.
