Multi-Touch in Nexus One by a Hack Nexus-oneGoogle’s Nexus One phone has vivid OLED screen and slim design but lacks Multi-touch. This has left some users frustrated.

But there’s a solution for it. Hack it. J

Steve Kondik, a developer who goes under the nickname Cyanogen, has offered a few files and instructions on code tonexus one add multitouch to the device. He has modified the Android 2.1 operating system running on the Nexus One to enable multi-touch for the device.

Nexus One has a touch-screen but users can only tap on it with only one finger. So, none of the two-finger pinch-and-zoom gestures that are popular among iPhone users are available. This makes Google fan boys feel low.

Google has said it will consider adding the feature in future updates, but Google lovers are not ready to wait. Steve just proved his love for the company and device making the positive hack and releasing it for free.

Google has not made any official statement regarding this hack. It is seen as a welcome step but to prevent future negative hacks, Google may choose to stay mumm. There is also no guarantee of the program security, and vulnerabilities. Hacking the phone could also violate terms for its warranty.

“You will initially lose your bookmarks and browser settings by doing this,” Steve warns. But getting multitouch in the Nexus One browser could just be worth it.

What they do for love...lol

Anyway, I really like that they actually modified it, even though I don't have an iPhone (although I'll be planning to have one in a few weeks)

iPhone just gets better and better.
