    Palm Pixi has MT?

    I could be totally overlooking something but i've noticed a lot of threads with people talking about how the Droid couldn't come with MT enabled because of an Apple copyright thing or something... but I just noticed that Palm Pixi commercial shows someone using it?

    What's MT?

    MT = Multi-Touch

    Droid does indeed support this.

    See for an example.

    I guess typing it out was a bit much....

    Droid supports MT just does not natively come with it. There are many rumors around why the droid didn't come with MT, there is no clear evidence as to why it didn't. Some say copyright, some say because apple asked them not to. But what is clear is that other phones have come with it that weren't apple. Palm pre, droid milestone, and other.
    Resistance is futile.

    I thought pinch-and-zoom was a subset of multi-touch? Therefore I thought the droid DID support multi-touch just not pinch-and-zoom?

    Yes sorry I misspoke. Pinch-zoom is a subset of MT. It supports both, picsay uses pinch-zoom if you want to, and a few others are known.

    Remember, Palm is (for reasons known only to them) perfectly happy with duking it out with Apple. After all, look at the games they are playing with iTunes and faking USB ids to enable their phone to sync.

    By avoiding the whole issue, the Droid still eventually gets multi-touch (through additional apps), but avoids creating a situation that could have taken away from the launch if Apple had tried to lash out with a lawsuit.

    The one positive to Palm's way of doing things is that every time Itunes breaks the Pre sync, they get mentioned in the news, and every time they issue a patch to enable sync again, it gets back in the (tech) news as well. Free publicity.

    In the end though Android can wait until they battle it out in court to see where Apple and Palm (and possibly the courts) go with this battle.
