@iamthewinnar,
I figured that was the case so i never was really bothered by it. The 854x400 resolution also makes up for it as well as the zoom and unzoom buttons.

They do bring up a good point regarding the google/apple relationship. Its going downhill at the momment and i think in the longhaul there will be a nice google vs apple relationship.

@Droid Motorola,
As far as I know the Droid's hardware supports multi-touch, just not the software. I'm sure you will soon see plug-in's that add this feature.

@iamthewinnar,
Yup, like I said, it's supported by the hardware, just not all applications (web browser) support it. I've seen tons of complaints about it not having multi-touch, this is a great video to show those people.

@Droid Motorola,
This is a really nice touch that I think most people will load. This issue has been brought up numerous times and I am glad we have a video to put it to rest.
