What measures might be taken to work around such touchscreen operation stalwarts like double tap to zoom is not clear at this point, but Samsung is actually saying its other options are to file a motion against the injunction, or appeal from here to eternity any negative decision that Judge Koh has to come up with on September 20, when the ban is to be upheld or denied...

pinch to zoom (or in my case Goatse zoom) is still neutral, better hope google copyrights that somehow.

Nokias and some hp mobil computers on their track pad have a circular motion zoom in zoom out and it's really useful

My Samsung Monte used a zooming feature I actually liked: you hold your finger on the screen and then you slide it up to zoom or down to unzoom, it's very convenient for one handed operation cause you only need one finger.

What happens when you need to scroll the screen, like on a website?

Two fingers, like how you use the tilt option in Google Maps might be a good substitute though.

Samsung already have tilt the entire phone to zoom or pan.

This really isnt that big a deal. I know for one I didnt choose Android because it could pinch to zoom or double tap to zoom. I rarely even use both.
