Apple had to take quite a bit of criticism and ridicule for not offering copy and paste on the iPhone. iPhone OS 3.0 released in 2009 brought copy and paste to the iPhone. Microsoft's decision to not have copy and paste in the WindowsPhone 7 feature set was risky. Today during the launch event Joe Belfiore did some damage control by announcing copy and paste for early 2011.
The feature will be part of a softwareupdate for Windows Phone 7. Belfiore argued that Microsoft got feedback from testers and partners that this feature is important. In the meantime you have to use the Windows Phone 7 QWERTY keyboard. At least Joe Belfiore can type very fast on a Windows Phone 7.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
