You may have heard the rumor and conjecture about Android supporting multi-touch in the not-too-distant future. Well, if you are a brave soul and are willing to gain root access on your beloved Android T-Mobile G1 device, then multi-touch may be ready for you sooner than you think.

Although still in the proof-of-concept phase, some ingenious people in the development community have provided an unofficial hack for multi-touch, including multi-touch browser and, as seen in the video, a multi-touch map app. If you are feeling adventurous and have an idea of what you are doing, then try it at your own risk. If you don't even know what "root access" means, then you may want to sit this one out and wait for official multi-touch.

[...] multitouch ist möglich (via androidcentral) [...]

This was genius on Google's part especially considering what's being talked about over at PreCentral. Apple's sharpening its teeth to sue Palm over the use of multi-touch. What Google did was put the "ability" for the G1 to use multi-touch but didn't activating it KNOWING someone would figure out ways to activate it. This way, Apple can't sue Google because multi-touch isn't a feature. Some "hacker" made it work and other tinkerers followed suit. But the masses don't have it.... Unless someone wanted to write an app that turned it on :)

Shrewd, very shrewd of you Google. Bravo!
