I believe it will never have multitouch since the screen is resistive and not capacitive.
Can I ask you something? Is the screen responsive? and does android 2.1 run smoothly?
Have you tried some 3D games like raging thunder or ExZeus? They run on the htc legend with the same processor but the e400 has less RAM.
One last question. while browsing, can you double tap to zoom or do you have to use the corresponding screen button.
...the other last question. How is the battery holding up for you?
Overall, I think that speck-wise this phone offers a good price/quality ratio.
Hope you' re happy with it. I just wish I could find a trusted review.
