This is a selection from Joshua Topolsky’s review of the Google Nexus S from Engadget.
As John Gruber commented, it’s hard not to remember that Apple waited until version 3.0 of iOS before including copy&paste (and, thusly, text selection). They caught all kinds of hell for it. But at least they never put anything like this steaming pile of afterthought UI into the world.
Windows Phone 7, by the way, does not include copy&paste, yet. I wonder why?
To all my friends who don’t understand why people think the iPhone is better: this is a great example. Is copy&paste a cornerstone of mobile device technology? No. Does a Sprint Evo 4G have a faster internet connection than an iPhone 4? Yes. Which one of us, though, will be yelling obscenities at our phone faster when we need to copy a phone number from an email and paste it into a text message?
