They knew about that package long time ago in the kernel and bootloader passing thread.
Also, we WILL not have true multitouch cause this type of touch screen does not support it, all it can do is fake the dual touch. (As you see in new Xperia 2012 Sola phone, SONY combines this type of touch screen with new type (Arc type till now) so they can using without touch the screen, you will notice that you can use a soft cloth and touch the screen too)
About 16M colors, I'm not sure cause some source say this screen can display, some not.
Didn't we confirm a few months ago that x10 can do multitouch lol??
I know what y'all thinkin...
