Windows Phone 7 copy and paste update begins rollout

Copy and paste functionality added to Phone 7 handsets in new software update

Microsoft’s overdue ‘NoDo’ update is finally being rolled out to Windows Phone 7 devices bringing the coveted copy and paste feature to the fledgling OS for the first time.

Although no official announcement of the update has been issued by the tech giant, a number of Phone 7 users have reported the NoDo update awaiting their handsets when docked to a PC and the company’s Zune software.

Whilst the copy and paste feature is the most high profile of the update’s new wares, those lucky enough to be on the receiving end of the software’s early arrival will also see their handset treated to improved Marketplace search options, faster apps and games, upgraded camera and handset performance as well as tweaks to the Wi-Fi, Outlook and Facebook integration.

Having released the first Windows Phone 7 update to a number of issues in January, Microsoft announced it would hold off the NoDo upgrade until certain these issues would not be replicated. Writing on the official Window’s Phone blog Eric Hautala said: "I believe it's important that we learn all we can from the February update. So I've decided to take some extra time to ensure the update process meets our standards, your standards, and the standards of our partners.”

He added: "As a result, our plan is to start delivering the copy-and-paste update in the latter half of March."

Unlocked handset are reportedly the first to be offered the NoDo Windows Phone 7 update with networks expected to roll out the software patch in the coming days.
