    I know that there are other multitouch threads, but I haven't found an answer to my specific question. Does the virtual keyboard support multitouch? I know Rob's video says it does, but I didn't actually see a physical example. With Nilay at engadget touting that it is not supported (in the keyboard) I can't help but want solid proof. Is there any way to get a video up of multitouch typing to soothe my troubled mind?

    Maybe I wasn't clear in my post. I do NOT care about Pinch Zoom. What I want to know is whether or not the virtual Keyboard recognizes multiple keystrokes at the same time. This is being debated by Engadget, and I would like to know for sure.

    You were clear in your post, but how does one show multi-touch in a video?

    Several reviews have stated that it DOES have multitouch, but you remain skeptical. Clearly, the vid above shows that the screen supports multiple simultaneous inputs (pinch zoom), which is needed for multi-touch typing.

    One can show keyboard multitouch support by striking one key, then striking another before letting up on the first key. If they both register, awesome. I know that the phone supports multitouch, but the browser clearly does not (for now), so I think it is within reason to wonder if the keyboard is the same way.
