Including Google maps hopefully! any ideas?
Hackers did manage to port over the euro version of the Droid though, which is capable of pinch-zoom. So you can flash that onto your Droid, if you want.
I think pinch zoom is so overrated. I think the double tap to me at least is much easier and better
+1. I'd say the same thing about the Dolphin Browser too.
The thing is, if both were capable, we'd all be happy.
I need to get a matte screen protector, the screen already sticks to my finger enough, especially after I wash my hands.
lol, nope there is always something to complain about. Heck if you hold your phone at a 45 degree angle on Mt Everest at 5:39 pm you will see light leaking from the right hand corner of the phone.....that type of stuff.:biggrin:
Amen brother!! :biggrin:
+1 Plus the second the Droid gets it, then all the whiny will become "it is just an Apple copycat"
Android 2.0 is fully capable of allowing pinch zoom of all native apps including google maps, they just chose not to allow it in the American verison of the Droid (as has been mentioned the European version called the Milestone already has it). Currently Apple is suing Palm for using pinch-zoom. I'm guessing that depending on how that comes out will decide if the Droid gets it as well. Either that or perhaps if enough of us complain loudly enough to Google.
According to acticle on Engadget talking aout the Nexus One not having it, it is a good bet that 2.1 will not have multitouch on native apps.

...honestly, its kind of annoying having to manipulate my hands as much as I do to scroll and type, and pinch zoom would just make it worse. I am used to using a stylus, where, ultimately I had to move my hand very little.
Everyone is so hyped over touchscreen technology. Just wait until you have to walk up to your 75" flat panel and swing your arms around to get it to scroll through the guide. How is that easier than pushing a button on a remote?
Sometimes newer technology isn't better. Can you see CAD operators moving their arms around in their cubicles to move their 3D rendered designs, rather than dragging a slider with mouse?
Sorry for the tangent, but I agree, Pinch-Zoom is not necessary, at all.
If the Nexus One isn't getting multi touch, the Droid certainly won't get it with the 2.1 update.
