Microsoft started shipping its first significant update to Windows Phone 7.
The update provides WP7 phones with a copy and paste function, as well as simpler navigation of Microsoft’s apps marketplace and improved app performance.
When Windows Phone 7 made its debut, developers and users complained that the mobile operating system lacked multi-tasking for apps as well as not having a cut and paste function.
A second update, codenamed Mango, that adds multi-tasking and a mobile version of Internet Explorer 9, is planned for the second half of the year. The second update will also include tight integration with Twitter, and support for Office documents in the cloud.
