At XDA, we don’t discriminate apps - if it’s interesting, innovative, original or useful, we mention them.

Copy & Paste on Windows Phone 7 Likely Confirmed
There is still some speculation going around about the Copy&Paste function in Windows Phone 7. Some people think that there won’t be any copy&paste function at all, others think that it will be included.

This code seems to be a clear evidence of a possible Copy&Paste function on Windows Phone 7.
