Thanks to the windfall of Storm documents obtained yesterday, the often asked question about how copy and paste works on the Storm can finally be answered. All you’ll need to do is put one finger at the beginning, and another finger at the end of the area you want to copy. Slide those two fingers together and you have yourself a highlight. Then go Menu, Copy, and you’re good to paste. If you’re worried about your bad hand-eye coordination, fear not, because hitting the Escape key deletes the highlight. Simple, brilliant, and effective. Maybe the boys of Cupertino should take a field trip to Waterloo.

UPDATE: As some of our readers pointed out, you actually use two fingers simultaneously on the screen with starting and ending points to select text to copy.
