Google caves to Apple on multitouch
Network World
Google Subnet writes about Apple’s multi-touch technology and where other vendors fit in.

“VentureBeat reports that Apple urged Google to avoid using the iPhone’s signature multi-touch technology in Google’s Android-based G1 phone, and that Google complied. If true, it makes Google seem pretty wimpy, especially in light of the fact that its Android phone was aiming to be a strong iPhone competitor. But now that Palm has unveiled its Pre, which makes ample use of multi-touch, Google’s decision actually looks pretty smart.”
