As you recall, copy and paste is not currently supported by Windows Phone 7, something that has been the target of much ridicule. As we recently reported, the feature is on the way.

And now we have video. Or we almost do, the video below may not work as YouTube is still processing it. If that is the case, go here to watch a choppy version. The OS build demonstrated is 7.07338.0, which you almost certainly do not have (unless you are a developer), so don’t try to do this at home.

What do we think? It looks like it is difficult to use, just like copy and paste for iOS, something that we have never been completely content with. Watch the video, and tell us in the comments what you think. Oh, this is coming out in ‘early 2011’ along with an undisclosed set of other features.
