    Nexus One gets a software update, enables multitouch -- Engadget

    Google's just outed a very, very significant update to the Nexus One that includes Google Goggles on board and a re-upped version of Google Maps that includes suggestions and a dedicated night mode. Much more significantly, though, they've capitulated and enabled multitouch in Browser, Gallery, and Maps -- great news and a big win for the Android community at large. Finally, there are some 3G improvements in there, so what are you waiting for? Go grab it.

    Was there a change in the version number of Android? Such as v2.1.1?

    Looks like Google was paying attention to S. Jobs this last week. He took the gloves off and delivered a couple low blows to Google and Adobe. So the next logical thing is to say a big "F" you to Apple and your "gentlemen's" agreement not to use multitouch in the US devices! Personally I would like to say WELL played Google keep up the good fight! Now could you please give Moto and VZW a call so we can get this pushed, better yet just push the multitouch update to ALL Android phones that are capable........you know you can!
