i dont think it will have multi touch, they probably further developed whatever they used on the "Chocolate" phone.

Looks much the same doesn't it?
I actually don't like either - touch screens make awful phones.
I like actual buttons, you can press real buttons without looking - can't be done with touch screens as there is no feedback.

What is multi-touch - how is it different to other touch screens that you can use your fingers on? Or is it Apples name for touch screen?
