    Hi all,

    Are you guys able to use the multi-touch feature on your IDEOS? Do I need to explicitly enable that option somewhere in the settings? Can't seem to use multitouch in the browser , nor in maps (it's still a new phone, just booted it up 2 hr ago, so I've yet to test it with other apps).

    Thanks a lot!

    There is no multi-touch on the device. The actual display hardware may support it, but it is not supported from huawei and I have yet to see any successful hacks to enable it.

    Guys,
    If you bought a U8150 with a synaptics touch screen = multitouch (if multitouch does not work, update kernel)
    If your touchscreen is melfas = NO multitouch /not even with CFW as suggested here/.
    To find our what type of screen you have, type: *#*# 2846579#*#*, Project menu, Veneer information query, Apparatus type query.
    It is annoying that Huawei put two different types of touchscreens in the same model, putting the customers with melfas touchscreen at disadvantage. You have no way of knowing which device you are buying until you check with above method which is not fair towards the customer and Huawei deserve to be flodded with protests.
