    means you can press two keys at once and both will register as input...the stock droid if you press two keys at once only one will register.

    It's a marketing scheme, don't stress it. All it means is that it can deal with two inputs at once (which all properly coded capacitive screens can).

    What? It's not a marketing scheme.. not by a long shot.

    You can type faster on multi touch keyboards because your 2nd finger doesn't have to wait for the 1st finger to fully release a key press for its touch to register.
