    I like this. I also liked the BGR review. There've also been some horrible reviews, with people claiming the Droid isn't even capable of multi-touch and others saying the phone is slow (what? It's really fast...)

    Multi-touch hasn't been enabled. Niether has pinch to zoom (damn apple), I haven't heard slow. Everything if read or heard is this device is a beast. We'll see in 3 days

    Are you sure multitouch hasn't been enabled? I was under the impression multitouch was enabled at the very least on the software keyboard, maybe in other places too (such as for games that are designed around simultaneous multitouch inputs).

    I swear I read that the software keyboard was multitouch enabled. I do understand there's no pinch to zoom, but I've come to understand that while it is an important missing function, it doesn't break the browsing experience; it's just something that could add to the overall polish and feel of the browser and the device.

    Yea I am. It is entirely possible a patch or upgrade will enable this, but straight out of the box. It's not enabled as far as I know. Now I won't have mine until friday like the rest of you (or later) but everything i've read or heard it's not enabled yet . It is surely something they should get fixed ASAP if you ask me, but it's not a deal breaker for me either. I've said before I don't play games on my phone. My storm doesn't have multi-touch either

    This is what I thought, but I wasn't about to argue with a moderator :/

    It's even on Droid from Verizon Wireless ... "multitouch" on the spinwheel graphic circling the droid. I swear.

    Not taking it is an argument at all. I would love to be wrong in this converstation. Read this link and review. It may be listed as an option but may noit be activated. Again I hope i'm wrong but wouldn't be unhappy if i'm not

    Hm. Well... I don't know what to think of this: Android 2.0 does indeed feature multitouch – Android and Me


    This is where, I think, I originally read about multitouch being enabled for the software keyboard so that you aren't slowed down when typing on-screen and not using the hardware keyboard, but they did seem to shy away from pinch to zoom (which we all already knew) because of Apple.

    Yep we will see in just a few days. It seems "confusing" at best

    Edit : it appreas other reports may be wrong. as this Motorola Droid: Browser and Media Review | Android Phone Fans shows explicitly it does have multi-touch capability. Very nice indeed.
