Okay, we all know Android 2.1, Eclair update for Xperia X10 is just Around the Corner and might pop up any time from now! We all are looking forward to many Interesting features this might bring to us like HD Recording, Continuous Auto-Focus, etc! For full Changelog of Android 2.1, Eclair on Xperia X10 Check this post! ( Unofficial ) And the same question which keeps popping up every time is the Ability to Multi-touch on Xperia X10! Despite multiple statements by Sony Ericsson through their different blogs and channels that Xperia X10’s Screen Hardware is not Capable of Multi-touch! So even if it is upgraded to Android 2.1, Eclair where the Multi-touch support is inbuilt, X10 won’t recieve Multi-touch by any means or any third party apps!
I recently posted a Timeline Events of Multitouch on Xperia X10! It’s about how Sony Ericsson first Posted that they are considering Multitouch for Xperia X10 in future updates and then how it changed to ” It doesn’t support Multi-touch ” just before the launch of Xperia X10! I’ve also posted the Links to all the Statements of the Sony Ericsson at their Product Launch blog!
Still the Folks at XDA and other communities are having discussions over this, if it is actually true or not! This might be only possible to test when we get a Custom ROM on Xperia X10 or with Androd 2.1, Eclair Framework on Xperia X10. So until X10 gets the Update, the discussions can not move forward in any direction!
So the First thing many would try after getting the Android 2.1, Eclair Update on their Xperia X10, is perhaps installing Multi-touch test apps on Xperia X10 and find if it supports Multi-touch or not! Would you?
If you said yes, then I bring to you the First Ever Multitouch test on Xperia X10 with Android 2.1, Eclair Firmware! 🙂 Now i leave it to you to decide if Multi-touch on Xperia X10 is possible or not!
