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.

Just like I have been trying to say. It does have multi touch. Just because the browser doesn't have pinch zoom does not mean it doesnt have multi touch. They also have a video showing the multitouch working on the standard soft keyboard as well.

Just dont buy this at best buy, they are a rip off, told me i was guarantteed to get one on the 6th, and sold me a gift card on the pre sale. now they said that they may not get too many so those on the list that they pre sold will have to wait, you would be better off at the verizon store at 7 am. now best buy says they cant return money on a gift card and that is the only way they will pre sell the droid. best buy sucks

If you put money on the best buy gift card and you still have your receipt a manager can return your money to you.
