Motorola DROID supports multi-touch for third party apps?
For reasons known only to Motorola and Google, the overseas version of the Motorola DROID, the MILESTONE, supports multi-touch right out of the box. For example, as we have reported, on the latter device, you can pinch to zoom on the browser. While the DROID will not offer multi-touch support on core functions, it will support it on third party apps. Phandroid has posted this video which shows that the handset-to be launched Friday by Verizon-will allow multi-touch use on the newest version of Picsay available in the Android Market. The whole thing begs for some sort of explanation why the MILESTONE and the DROID have different levels of multi-touch support. It isn't that the Android system doesn't support multi-touch as the video shows that it certainly does. And while the Android browser doesn't use multi-touch as a default setting, it is something that can be added as it was on the MILESTONE.
