Andy Rubin, in response to a question regarding the lack of multitouch on US Google Experience Android devices, namely the Droid and Nexus One:
“It’s not an America versus outside America kind of thing. It’s a decision that is a result of the OEM model. I personally don’t like two-handed operations… there is no conspiracy.”
Um, okay. We don't even know what to say, but we're not buying it. Maybe we're conspiracy theorists to believe that deeper and darker reasons exist but multitouch is such a natural and intuitive feature that to not have it as even an option, simply puts your device at a competitive disadvantage.
But above all, the answer is incredibly odd. We're not even sure what's so bad about two-handed operations, heck, we do our typing two handed. We don't put the blame on Andy Rubin, everyone has their own unique preferences, but dude, come on. Looks like this multitouch issue won't be resolved anytime soon.
