Have no fear, Cut and Paste will soon be here.

One of the biggest items of concern I have gotten from individuals and that was argued about in closed door settings I have been a part of is cut and paste. When we learned this was not currently included, you would have thought that they left off “phone dialing” or something. I rarely use cut and paste, but I definately saw the future. I saw the complaints about it’s ommision from a mile a way. Remember when Apple didn’t have this funtionality on the iPhone? Yep, people were kicking and screaming. When it finally showed up, the world rejoiced.

Microsoft apparently has heard the screaming early and today, they promised cut and paste in a Q1 2011 update. This is great news as it’s one of the main negatives that Microsoft’s new OS is getting.

    I find that the lack of paste in Bing for Windows Mobile 6.5 makes Bing almost unusable as I can’t get an address from any other program to look it up in Bing. To use Bing, I have to write the address down on a piece of paper so I can remember it long enough to type it into Bing. That Microsoft would leave something so fundamental out tells me that they have no clue whatsoever about what I need in a smartphone.

      If you would have watched the live stream from WP7 launch, you would know that WP7 automatically recognizes addresses and links them to Bing Maps ;)

    I still don’t understand what’s so difficult about baking in cut/copy/paste from the get go.

      I don’t get it either. We, the MVPs, told Microsoft 6+ months ago that this would be a big issue too.

    Maybe expandable storage will be in that update as well…oh, wait, never mind. Guess we can put that on the to-do list, ooops, that’s out too. There are too many things running at once around here…no that’s not gonna work either. 1 out 4 is a start.
