Windows Phone 7 Will Get Copy & Paste...After Launch?

We've lamented WP7's lack of copy & paste (though we haven't missed the irony), but now trusted Windows blogger Long Zheng is reporting that all hope is not lost:

As it turns out, the development team actually knows exactly how they will be implementing copy & paste in WP7S but did not believe it could be implemented without affecting the release schedule they've committed too and therefore will be including it in an update down the road.

Zheng is also fairly certain that the process won't take two years, as it did on the iPhone. [istartedsomething via BGR]
