Doesn't apple have a multitouch patent?
It's not an error. Here is a video of the HTC Hero, you can clearly
see the multi touch support (zooming): http://www.adobe.com/devnet/devices/articles/htchero.html
Back on topic. Will the Android SDK support multi touch?
Last time it came up (when Luke did his psuedotouch hack) the answer
was - patents/etc aside - mostly a mix of D and E. Specifically,
they'd love to see proposals and ideas for SDK support (including
clean/reasonable fallback for single touch, the psuedotouch G1 does
and proper multiple-simul-locations multitouch) and would prolly help,
a little, with the implementation.
So .. G) We'd love to hear actual proposals but its OSS so "do it yourself"
