Microsoft delays Windows Phone copy/paste update

delayedLikely due to some of the problems it had with its initial update, Microsoft’s French WP blog (via Mobile Burn) has announced that its long-awaited “NoDo” update to Windows Phone 7 will be delayed until the end of March. The update is said to add key functionality like copy and paste abilities to Windows Phone. At the Mobile World Congress last month, CEO Steve Ballmer reiterated that the update would be available during the first two weeks of March. There was no explanation for the delay.

To receive the update, users will have to connect their Windows Phone to a PC and connect it to Microsoft’s Zune software.
