Ok, we can officially and finally put this debate to rest: yes, Apple really could use its multi-touch input system to enable users to friggin' copy / paste text in the iPhone. And to prove it, the usual random internet dude (lonelysandwhich) has put his skills to the test and developed a demo proof of concept video that Conan O'Brien will probably sue over. Hit it up after the break!

Gotta admit, there's been more than a couple of times that I'd have liked to have copy & paste capability! But I also frequently need highlight/delete. So, that little pop up should have at least three buttons... Copy, Paste and Delete.

Truly amazing that you can sell such a device in 2007 without it.

I think that Apple simply either hasn't perfected it yet or they were worried it would complicate the interface and interfere with its adoption. But to have the gall to think you can pull off introducing the device without it says a lot about Apple and about us.

The title of this thread should be "Fake Copy and Paste demo!" Grrrr, got my hopes up for nothing.

Video was funny though. God it reminded me of how annoying the guy that does the iPhone's videos is. :p
