Copy and paste coming to Windows Phone 7 ‘in a matter of weeks’

Lending a tremendous amount of credibility to rumors that Windows Phone 7 would receive copy and paste functionality in January, a Microsoft executive has commented on the impending arrival of feature. In a blog post, Microsoft’s Director of Microsoft Project Arpan Shah said the following while addressing critics of Windows Phone 7:

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.

We’re still eight weeks away from the end of 2010, so we doubt Shah would have used the phrase “a matter of weeks” if the time line stretched beyond the end of January.
