No multitasking, and no copy and paste? What year is this again? Didn't we already have to go through that kind of crap with the Iphone since 2007? And here it is, the end of 2010, and you do this?

Copy and paste is coming in early 2011.

This is a whole new OS from the ground up. Frankly, it has more features than I expected. Android was not this well-rounded and feature-complete in version 1.0, or even 1.5, for that matter.

I'm not saying it's perfect; far from it. It has issues and they're not minor. But I think it's a respectable entry and will move some units this holiday, and be a serious contender in 2011.

I understand that it is a whole new os, but not including copy n paste and multitasking, which are basic, important features that your competitors have, was a decision that they made, and a very stupid one in my opinion. But yeah, I agree, I think that they will sell a lot of these.

Ummmmm, copy and paste will be here first part of 2011. How many phones did Apple produce before they included it?

WinMo 6.1 and 6.5 had multitasking.
Looks like a step backwards to me.

I can't take WinMo seriously period. The world doesn't need another platform. Palm learned that the hard way. Besides WinMo 7's interface looks dyslexic with those tiles and big a$$ fonts. Terrible. At least Palm had a good OS. Nobody cared but at least it had a great interface. This is crap

Yes, copy paste is important, but it's also on the way. Android has copy paste but it's hardly the best implementation of it. (I wouldn't say apple's is either.. it asks me to copy things FAR too often)

More important (at least when it comes to a mobile platform) is enticing developers about the device, which they did.

#correction;

We had to go through that crap IN 2007, not SINCE 2007. Using the word "since" implies that the iPhone still does not have copy and paste.

Windows Phone 7 will have copy and paste shortly after its release. Although, you will probably never use that feature anyway.
