Copy & Paste 4 Windows Phone 7 & "Really" Windows Phone 7 Contest


Microsoft has confirmed that the coveted ability to copy and paste on Windows Phone 7 will be coming in early 2011.  The company is also ramping-up marketing of Windows Phone 7 with a "Really" contest.

Microsoft Project Manager for Microsoft Project, Arpan Shah, wrote in his blog:

"Critics have commented on the lack of specific features like copy &
paste and lack of 100s of thousands of applications.  And while both are
true, copy & paste will be available as an update in a matter of
weeks (early 2011), and as for applications, it's just a matter of time."

Mr. Shah touts Windows Phone 7 by writing that it's not just Microsoft employees who think it
offers a unique, compelling user experience that's different from other
smartphones out there - and that includes the iPhone.

What he thinks that makes the
Windows Phone 7 special and different from other smartphones, beyond the
user experience, is its intuitive integration with Facebook
availability through different carriers beyond AT&T and unlimited
Zune music subscription.

Microsoft has been running their "really" commercials, showing experiences where you can't believe people are using their smartphones, including the boudoir, show and men's room.

Microsoft may win over more users because of their universal appeal.  Microsoft is running a contest on their Facebook site, where users share their "head-in-phone" stories for a chance to win a Windows Phone 7.
