Microsoft seeds new developer tools, copy and paste onboard

Ever since Microsoft launched WP7, many have been asking for copy and paste. Microsoft has officially started seeding a new version of the Windows Phone Developer Tools to registered WP7 developers

Microsoft, via PPCGeeks, is touting copy and paste as "easy and intuitive" and it is expected that the official rollout of the feature set will happen in the next few weeks. Copy and paste is not the only upgrade the update will bring to the platform, it will also allow for better marketplace search and faster performance.

This update comes shortly after Microsoft posted up instructions on how to troubleshoot your update. All of this signals that Microsoft is getting ready to push out the update and finally bring some of the feature that users have been asking for. Microsoft states:

One question we hear often is: What’s next for Windows Phone? We’re obsessive about listening closely to our customers and improving our phone software. So over the next few months, look for updates that add some new features you’ve asked for and also tune up your phone’s performance.

Microsoft is putting a lot of weight behind WP7 and is promoting it with a $500 million dollar campaign. While Microsoft may be entering a maturing market, it has shown in the past that it has the ability to muscle into any arena and be profitable.
