Android 1.0 does not include a multi-touch API.  At this time, the only
formally Android-compatible device is the T-Mobile G1, which itself does not
have multi-touch hardware.

If and when manufacturers are interested in bringing to market devices that
include multi-touch, we will work with them to devise the appropriate APIs
and support, according to our usual open-source process.  (See
http://source.android.com for more info on the open source project.)
