Comparison of copy & paste on multiple platforms

PocketNow has published a video comparing the different implementations of copy & paste (including old skool WinMo) that takes us through the variations and shows how it's all extremely similar, yet indifferent. A great watch for all your copy & paste lovers. The devices used in this demonstration include the Blackberry Torch, Samsung Galaxy S (4G), iPod Touch and Nokia N8.

Which platform performs the function best for you, and what would you see improved for your choice of platform? Let us know below.

No copy and paste love for me and my HD2. The DFT published a video of an HD2 running NoDo so now we're pretty much just waiting on a public release. :D


I know it's easy to pass this off as fanboyism, but WP7 looked like the best implementation. Also, if I were a Nokia user, I'd welcome WP7. Just sayin'. :-P

It is interesting they did not show the Windows Mobile 6.5.3 copy and paste considering it is a bit different than the 6.1 and below (as shown from the WM 5.0 device). Interesting too that all the copy and paste is essentially the same.

iOS is a lot easier to do than how it was showed. he also missed the "shake to undo" which is a feature i wish all devices had.

That sounds too much like a etch a sketch. :-)

LOLS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Are you people kidding? Nothing beats BlackBerry in copy & paste. It's not even debatable. Like it or hate it, BB has a keyboard, a trackpad, and a touchscreen. So you can accurately and intuitively copy anything from ANY screen, ANY app, and ANY settings page, ANY webpage, or anywhere in the OS.I've owned andriod with and with out keyboard, ios and wp7. They don't come anywhere close to the copy & paste of BB.Stupid articles like this perpetuate false information and turn fanboy opinions into facts.

Hahahaha Nokia was just terrible!In iOS's defense, he made it seem a little harder than it was. You don't need to tap and hold to paste, though that is an option. You can just tap and it'll come up.Android varies from phone to phone, though I think with Gingerbread, it's a lot more elegant.
