Copy And Search In Windows Phone 7

While the Copy & Paste feature is not available in the original version of Windows Phone 7 that we've got now, some of you may have noticed that you can actually select text in Internet Explorer. What's that about? You can tap a single word and it becomes selected. Tapping and holding on the word doesn't do anything. It doesn't bring up a copy menu like you might expect. Well, guess what… after you select a word in IE, press the search button and that word will get copied into the Bing app and instantly perform a search for that word.

This is useful if you see a word and you don't know what it means or if you just want more information about a single word. We expect this feature will be expanded when a real copy & paste feature is implemented in a coming update.
