    There have been many news articles and reviews on the Motorola Droid that claim the phone lacks multi-touch and Pinch & Zoom made so popular by the iPhone. Well Rob over @ Phandroid has proved everyone wrong and released a video today that backed up his findings.

    I wonder if you change browers if you could get the pinch zoom to work then.

    This might shut up some of the iPhone Fanboys now :icon_ banana:

    It's all in the software apparently, the hardware supports it !!

    To say "that's cool" would be a huge understatement.

    Great find!

    Eris is an HTC Android (the Hero Re-branded) and is running sense UI so yes it should have the pinch zoom feature.

    Haven't bought it and already going through buyer's remorse

    Ok...
    I'm someone who likes to get the best value for my money....now I'm DEFINITELY getting the Motorola Droid....but with all this talk about new versions of Android (2.1) to be released in early 2010, as well as the QWERTY-less version...(which I do NOT want)...this is all leading me to believe that they are going to push a fix/ updated hardware AND software Moto Droid (1.5) sometime before the June 2010. Anybody getting that impression?
    Right now, I'm reluctantly moving back to 'on the fence' with my purchase of the Droid.....UGHH!

    I would imagine seeing updates and patches prior to the release of 2.1 that will fix certain things that people are having issues with. I hope that 2.1 comes out early and does have the app2SD card function on it.
