Microsoft has finally pushed out its NoDo update, bringing with it copy-and-paste functionality but unfortunately no multitasking. That one’s still in the pipeline, apparently.

Microsoft has now officially updated its Updates Page where it has detailed what new features users can expect from the NoDo update.

Copy-and-paste is the flagship feature of NoDo, and to use this new feature you simply tap on words, wait for the arrows, select the text you want and select copy – just like on Android and iOS.

Users are free to copy text from email, text messages and web pages, as well as Office Mobile Docs and paste it ‘anywhere you can type.’

But that’s not all, Microsoft also claims that the NoDo update has ‘whittled down the time it takes for apps and games to start up and resume,’ as well as improving the Marketplace’s search function – so you only see what you’re looking for.

Microsoft has also said it’s improved credit card integration in Windows Phone 7 for users outside the UK, which is certainly good news for us of here on the right side of the pond.

Tweaks to Windows Phone 7’s camera app, Facebook app and Bluetooth audio have also been introduced as well.

There’s also no more limit for the number of Wi-Fi profiles you can save to your device and Microsoft has also said that it’s ‘improved the experience of viewing iPhone photo attachments you receive from a non-Exchange-based email account.’

As with most updates, the rollout is once again dependent on networks. So if you’re with Orange, you could be waiting awhile.

Either way, NoDO is here and ready to go, so get on the phone to your networks and hurry them along.

And this is just a taste of things to come. Microsoft is reported to be pushing out ‘the big one’ later in the year, which will bring multitasking, Internet Explorer 9, Twitter integration and the ability to use your device with Microsoft’s Xbox 360 Kinect.
