The Motorola Droid has launched with much hubbub and publicity with talk of it being an Iphone killer, (of course its not the brand recognition is too strong) now in the US Motorola has disabled the multitouch feature on their new flagship phone for an unknown reason even thought it is one of the central features of the Iphone and a necessity if they want to approach enter the kingdom of the Iphone
Unfortunately there’s no North American 3G for the device which means “grey market” consumers will have to choose whether 3G data speeds or Multitouch capabilities are more important to them.
However the European version of the Droid (Milestone) does have multitouch (though the Google maps GPS is disabled). I don’t know why they disabled the multitouch feature but it has been said that they are trying to avoid a patent fight with Apple but if that is true Why does the Palm remain un-sued? they have multitouch on the Pre and I believe even the Pixi.
In response to your question regarding differences between MILESTONE and DROID, we work very closely with our carriers and partners to deliver differentiated consumer experiences on our mobile devices,
So once again we turn to the underground where some intelligent evildoer will unlock multitouch and free our single touch shackles
