Cnet is reporting that it believes that multi-touch support will come with the Eclair (2.0) update for Android, and not in Donut (1/6). As for devices, Cnet also mentions that they believe the upcoming Motorola Sholes for Verizon will be the first phone to come with the Eclair update, and that it will make its debut on October 6 at the MotoDev event in San Diego.
For those of you who have hacked multi-touch support onto your G1′s, how significant would this inclusion be? Is multi-touch as essential as it’s been made out to be? It is already available in HTC’s Hero, which is on sale in Europe right now.
