Microsoft publishes details of first Windows Phone 7 update

While Microsoft neglected to supply an answer to the one question on every Windows Phone 7 user’s mind — when? — the Redmond giant has finally published details surrounding the imminent first update for its new mobile operating system. Jibing with earlier rumors, Microsoft’s first WP7 update will not be the huge patch once expected. Instead, it will bring one major feature everyone has been waiting for — cut/copy/paste functionality — alongside some minor feature updates and maintenance. Changes highlighted by Microsoft include copy/paste, of course, along with speedier app launching and switching, as well as a repaired Marketplace search function that will no longer populate music when users search for apps. Expect the update to address the Yahoo! email superfluous data bug as well.
