Android gets multi-touch support
When the first Android-based T-Mobile G1 mobile phone came out, it doesn’t have support for multi-touch. Luke didn’t take this sitting down. Instead he created the needed code to have support for multi-touch features on the Android open mobile platform. Although it’s not available on the commercially available T-Mobile G1 just yet, you can alway try it out by replacing your current Android OS (caution: some technical geekiness required 🙂 ).
Watch the video and check it out for yourself to decide whether it’s worth the risk of bricking your Android cell phone. You can read about the details of the multi-touch hack for Android over at Luke’s blog.
