The Nexus One Just Got Multi-Touch

Google has just started to deploy an update to the Nexus One that brings a long-desired feature to Android: Multitouch. In a blog post announcing the news, Google says that the new update will bring "Pinch-to-zoom functionality" to the Nexus One, which will allow users to pinch-to-zoom in the Android browser, Gallery, and Maps applications. So does this mean that Multitouch will be coming to all Android phones? Not quite yet. A Google spokesperson says that multitouch support is part of the Android 2.0 framework and that its integrated support on the Browser, gallery, and Maps applications will be part of the next Android update. However, it will be up to carriers and device manufactures to roll the updated software to these devices.
