On my G1, some applications permit cut/copy/paste, but only - as far as I
can tell, within the app :(

The UI varies with the app. Some use the 'Menu' key to access this
functionality. Some use a long screenpress (a bit like Windows Mobile, in
case you've used that). Haven't had much time to explore this, as only got
my G1 yesterday (free upgrade from previous WinMo phone!).

I don't know, but I really hope it's possible.
