If you were betting on Windows Mobile 7 but the idea of not having “copy-paste” broke your faith, then here’s some good news. As per someone “close to the den” the plan was always to include the feature, but the company had to eliminate that from the initial launch, to fulfill the 2010 launch target. As per a trusted source, Microsoft does plan to put this feature, which will eventually come as an ‘update’.
Obviously this statement directly contradicts Microsoft’s original claim that users do not realy need the copy-paste feature. Most visitors at the MIX10 event found the removal of the feature surprising, especially considering that all prior editions of the mobile OS had this feature. Of course the possibility of this ‘update’ is not official, so there is no guarantee. Then again, it is a simple feature and getting it back as an update is not that impossible. What do you say?
