Ten seconds that confirm multitouch on the Xperia X10?
Whom do you believe? Some Sony Ericsson officials say that the Xperia X10 will not support multitouch because of hardware restrictions, and others at the joint venture say that an upgrade expected for September will bring multitouch to the handset. Well, if you can't believe everything you read, maybe you can just believe what you see. And what you will see for 10 seconds in the video below, from the 6:50 mark to 7:00, is multitouch in Google Maps for the X10. They say seeing is believing and it looks like there will be quite a few more potential X10 buyers in the U.S. believing that the device's hardware does not prevent the phone from scoring an upgrade to support multitouch later this year.

His thumb is like longer than my index finger... Anyway, back to the phone. They have got to optimized media/time scape...makes the phone looks so slow.

Apart from my thumb being super large(i'm the one in the video and i'm 195cm tall so that could be why my hands are way bigger than yours), you can try this by yourself by downloading google maps 4.1.1

In the beginning of the video, the whole spinning thing when he taps an icon is so unnecessary and waste of time... haha Later, the person (unknown_x i suppose) realizes that google map was running extremely slow, thus he had to turn it off right away... ROFL Maybe cuz he had the satellite view making it running a lot slower comparing to street views. Other than that, the phone looks very promising and definitely has handsome looking. The camera with 8MP is just awesome. Now.. again.. CAN SONY OR AT&T STOP BEING ANAL AND RELEASE THE DAMN PHONE ALREADY!?

"Later, the person (unknown_x i suppose) realizes that google map was running extremely slow, thus he had to turn it off right away...
