Xperia X10 To Get Pinch-to-zoom in Q1 2011

Since the release of the Xperia X10, perhaps even before, there has been a lot of discussion as to whether the Xperia X10 would be capable of multitouch.   As you know, the answer turned out to be a resounding no.  At one point, Sony Ericsson declared that the hardware of the Xperia wasn’t able to handle multitouch.  Today finds the handset maker issuing an about-face.

Yes, dear folks, you’re reading it right. Multitouch is on the way but it will take some time and it will be pinch-to-zoom only. You see, when the two fingers cross each other on the X- or Y-axis, the phone starts to behave weirdly. Those of us across the pond, and those of us on AT&T don’t care.  It’s still brilliant, and welcome anyway!  [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=868sPlG3dCY&feature=player_embedded[/youtube]
