I think this is at an os / rom level.. (although the Dolphin browser is very smooth!) Dolphin may be using this hacky 'multitouch' though.
I'll eat my hat when I see multitouch on Android that clearly supports more than 2 fingers...! I just don't think it's in the hardware.
Prove me wrong devs! I'm only a cartoonist.
As of Android 2.x, multi-touch is available at the software level and might I say executed very well in apps like Dolphin. It's available in the new 2.1 SDK (I've played with it) and should work no differently than it does on the iPhone, possibly better given the better hardware. I haven't tried these two apps but it will be nice when developers start developing MT apps.
MT is turned off by default for built-in apps like Browser and Gallery and Google apps like Gmail, Maps, etc. MT is supported out of the box outside the U.S. As soon as the source code for 2.1 is released, developers creating custom ROMs can simply switch on MT and it will be in the built-in browser and the Gallery.
People have to stop saying Android doesn't support MT because that is no longer the case. Google simply refuses to give a concrete reason it was turned off in U.S. model devices.
