Motorola: Multi-Touch on "Majority of Devices Going Forward"

One of the first things to be pointed out about the Nexus One was its lack of multi-touch.  In fact, the same could be said of the Motorola Droid.  While we settle for double tapping and zoom buttons, our friends around the world are enjoying pinching and pulling.  According to Motorola CEO, Sajnay Jha, they’ll be doing their part to bring multi-touch to more handsets.

I think you will see us deliver multitouch in the majority of our devices going forward. There’s a complex set of factors, not all of them technical. But I think you’ll see us being proactive on multitouch because the user feedback on multitouch is very good.

Wonder what the “complex set of factors” are if they are not technical.  Sounds political.

We’re curious to find out just how important multi-touch is to you.  Is it an “about time” deal for you or is it more “that’s cool, but not necessary” type thing?  Leave a comment below!
