[video=youtube;cM1JSFXnQpg]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cM1JSFXnQpg]YouTube - Motorola Droid DOES Have Multi-Touch[/video]

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.

Picsay even has PINCH AND ZOOM. What critics don’t understand or failed to acknowledge/research is that while the Android Browser doesn’t have multi-touch capabilities by default, the operating system itself supports multi-touch. If you don’t believe me, you obviously didn’t watch the above video from an application currently available on Android Market.

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

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

That sound you just heard was the Iphone cult losing their trump card over the Droid.
