    Apparently the lack of multitouch in key apps on the Droid more of a google decision. Motorola wants multitouch for all! :icon_ banana:

    Multitouch coming to 'majority' of future Motorola devices, says CEO -- Engadget


    I didn't see this posted anywhere else here. If it is in fact a duplicate, please delete it. I think this is definitely news worthy.

    Yes, but since the OS is from Google that doesn't mean we will see multi touch on the Droid.

    That doesn't mean Motorola can't add their own functionality on top of it. It's free from Google, it's open source, they can virtually do what they want with it.

    I keep forgetting that. It comes from the old Blackberry mind set. Good point.
