iPhone Gets Cut and Paste

Well, sort of. News reaches us that Quickoffice for the iPhone has been submitted for Apple’s approval, and could be available via the App store as early as next week.

Quickoffice is a mobile application that allows you to open, read and edit Microsoft Office files, including Word documents and Excel spreadsheets. It is already available for other mobile operating systems, including Symbian, Blackberry and Android.

We haven’t had a chance to play with Quickoffice on the iPhone yet, but the screenshots we have seen (like the one above) clearly show a Word document with the magic words, Cut, Copy, Paste and Delete above some highlighted text.

One of the most common criticisms of Apple’s all-conquering mobile device is that it does not allow users to copy and paste text, such as web addresses or phone numbers, between applications or windows. The forthcoming version 3 software, due for release this summer, is expected to address this problem.

In the meantime, this could be the next best thing. No news on pricing yet.
