This is getting confusing. First, the Xperia X10 wasn't going to get multitouch because the hardware wasn't capable. Then we heard that the Xperia X10 would receive multitouch in a software update. And now it's back to square one -- no multitouch, ever, on the Xperia X10. How do we know? First, we found out on Twitter. And then SE Communication Manager Harold de Kort said so. In his words:

“Multi-touch will not be a feature in future updates for the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 because the device does not support multi-touch due to her software and hardware configuration. The operation and user experience of the phone will be further improved and Sony Ericsson will come with her own intuitive way of, for example, zooming in and out.”

So there you have it folks. No multitouch on the Xperia X10. And frankly, it's been so long since anyone has been excited about the X10, we're not sure anyone cares if there's multitouch or not.. [via Twitter and androinica]

Sony failed with the phone before it hit the leaked forums. Now all they have done is Harpoon it to the "it had so much potential" wall of fail. It is an android phone none the less, so it is better than most devices out there. But who would choose this over a much better spec, equally priced device.

They've made a lot of monney for a compagny that you say has "failed". It's is still a high-end phone that is on par with the Nexus one (the best android phone for now). Also, what's coming out in the next months isn't all that much better then the X10.

So i'll stick with my X10.

And another reason why i love it:

Whatever update comes out in the future, SE guarantied to give it to X10 users, and that compensates with the current lack of 2.1 to me.

Seems like the Xperia team suffered from a good dose of myopia. It's come to the point where multi-touch is akin to air conditioning in a car. Sure, you can get by without it, but why would you?

What is an Xperia X10? Oh, think I may have read about it in an archived magazines at the library. Don't remember much about it...

I can use multi touch for zooming in and out in x10 while using opera mini. Does it mean there is really no HW limitations? Check it out yoursrf guys.
