Turns out Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 is capable of multi-touch after all, I wonder why SE doesn’t use it

According to Sony Ericsson its crown jewel XPERIA X10 doesn’t sport the hardware needed for performing multi-touch gestures on the XPERIA X10. That’s why there’s no sign of pinch zooming in the Android 2.1 Eclair update despite that the smartphone has a nice capacitive screen.

Fortunately, some developers over at XDA didn’t buy that story and went on a quest for enabling multi-touch support on the Sony Ericsson flagship. And frankly, they’ve succeeded.

There is nothing more to say, just watch the demos.

I can’t imagine playing Angry Birds without the zoom-out pinch gesture.

The unofficial software fix is still in the works, but I hope it will be released as a user-friendly package soon enough.
