Windows Phone 7 Series to lack copy and paste functionality at launch

It looks like Windows Phone 7 Series will be, at least in one way, similar to the first versions of Apple’s iPhone OS: it won’t have copy and paste.

According to Engadget, Microsoft has just confirmed this during its MIX10 conference – where the Redmond giant has also unveiled Windows Phone Marketplace, free WP7 developer tools and more.

Sure enough, this doesn’t mean Microsoft won’t bless Windows Phone 7 Series with copy and paste functionality sometime later after launch. After all, Apple did it for the iPhone after almost two years since the first iPhone came out.

Meanwhile, Windows Mobile 6.5 (as well as older editions) can handle copy and past just fine.

Back to Windows Phone 7 Series, the first commercially available devices to run it are expected to be launched during the 2010 holiday season (LG Panther and that OmniaHD-like Samsung handset will probably be among them).
