It looks like Microsoft [MSFT] has decided to leave an important feature out of Windows Phone 7 smartphones, Copy and Paste.
Microsoft’s Windows Phone Executive Todd Brix said “We don’t enable copy and paste and we do that very intentionally”, it does seem somewhat of a strange move considering the amount of hassle Apple received over the lack of copy and paste in the iPhone.
Instead Windows Phone 7 will have something called smart linking, which will let you double click on a phone number and either call it or add it to your phonebook.
This is definitely a strange move as Windows Phone 7 will have support for Microsoft Word and other office functions, you would think that copy and paste would be a fundamental part of these programs.
Who knows this may be something that Microsoft adds to Windows Phone 7 in the future, but for now this is one advantage that the Apple iPhone will have over Windows Phone 7 smartphones.
