Only a few places have mentioned that the reason the Droid lacks multitouch in the stock Google apps is due to Apple US patents. Is this actually the reason? Because if so, why do people say its a big mistake for Google not to have included it and hopefully they will "one day". As if the patents will no longer matter? And its not like Apple will license it to Google anytime soon, nor do I see Google paying a license fee either. And if its a patent issue, how do the the 3rd party apps avoid patent issues? I guess the only stock app where this feature is most useful is the browser, and since the Milestone Browser is able to be put on the Droid without rooting, its kinda moot. Just kinda burns me when I read how the Droid is somehow deficient in its lack of multitouch when its most likely a legal issue and obviously not a technical one.
