Contrary to report out of Microsoft MIX10 that Windows Phone 7 Series willn’t feature copy & paste functionality, a person close to den explained that copy & paste is definitely a scenario and feature that the team is putting a lot of thought about and hope to bring to the platform soon after initial release. “Microsoft already knows at least one way to do copy & paste from Windows Mobile (see embedded video), but this was one of many scenarios they want to refine for their new user experience which already has a lot of “smarts” for automatically connecting data between applications – for e.g., detecting and hotlinking addresses in emails to Bing Maps. As it turns out, development team actually knows exactly how they’ll be implementing copy & paste in WP7S but didn’t believe it could be implemented without affecting the release schedule they’ve committed too and therefore’ll be including it in an update down the road,” revealed. The slide below from Charlie Kindel’s talk at MIX10 — shows various elements of WP7 platform in architectural diagram form — provides a quick overview of what the Softies are telling developers and designers this week about the company’s next-gen mobile platform.
