We’ve heard that Android has Multi-Touch capabilities before but we’ve never seen it in action with such detail and such great explanation/description. The video uses a lot of developer lingo but illustrates beautifully how multi-touch could work on real applications like Google Maps scaling (4-minutes in):

This Multi-Touch “hack” does NOT require a recompilation of the kernel and only one Java system library needs to be modified. However, this multi-touch system does have some limitations due to the locking of the X and Y coordinates.
