A group of application hackers have made the copy and paste functionality available in Windows Phone 7 through unlocked developer emulators. A post by Windowsphonehacker.com provides the users with the emulator ROM for the latest Windows Phone 7 update which gives the users the much awaited copy and paste functionality. An updated version of the Windows Phone 7 Developer Tools was shipped by Microsoft last week and the hackers didn’t take a long time in unlocking a full version of the emulator ROM for the update. The emulator that has been unlocked lets the developers use the Windows Phone 7 software on their computers in a virtual environment. Microsoft is being long expected to provide the users of its mobile platform with a software update which will add the long sought after copy paste functionality to it.
This feature has been fully demonstrated through the emulator that the hackers have unlocked.
The first update by Microsoft for the Windows Phone 7 platform is also expected to improve the start-up and resume time for applications. The company recently posted an article on its website to provide users with support and instructions for the update process which gives all the details about the device updates. The article has led to a lot of rumors which suggest that an update is imminent in the near future. It had been revealed by Microsoft in January that the company had shipped more than 2 million devices to carriers. Previously, between its launch in October to the month of December, it had shipped more than 1.5 million devices which ran Windows Phone
7. A research by a firm named IDC and an application platform called Appcelerator which consulted with more than 2,000 developers to find out their intentions for 2011 said that the popularity of the mobile platform was on the rise owing to some nifty performance and visual improvements.
