windowsphone7 Windows Phone 7 Series: No Copy and Paste

It was a surprise but it was mentioned during a Mix session by Microsoft
that clipboard operations will not be supported in Windows Phone 7
series.

That’s right. No copy and paste.

The folks at Engadget have confirmed with Microsoft that it will not supported. It is baffling indeed as the previous WinMo series have this feature. Perhaps it is a new era to introduce a slew of feature to compliment the lack of copy and paste ?

Quoting the source:

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.

I for one could not really agree with this. Ctrl + C and Ctrl + V is a feature that I use so often
