Just FYI -- the HTC has Pinch just the same as the iPhone.. so it really just comes down to what you consider multitouch to be and want it to do.

Re: How many people WILL NOT get this device because of the lack of multi-touch?

Technically it does have multi-touch, but it is currently only enabled on the on-screen keyboard. I hope with 2.1 in the works they will enable it in the browser as well. I wonder if the new opera for android may support it. From what i have read it is up to programmers if they want to incorporate multi-touch in their products..

I will still get it - the euro version (milestone) has the pinch multi-touch gesture supported so it will not be long before it is hacked into the droid imho

The Droid DOES have Multi-touch... pinch-to-zoom just isn't implemented for some reason.

By the way, Multi-touch != Pinch-to-zoom, although Pinch-to-zoom = Multi-touch.
