Much like the capacitive panel on the Diamond that can be used in most applications if they are set up right, I think it may be possible to apply a very similar set of tweaks to most applications on the Leo to enable some rudimentary multitouch.
This stems from my digging in the registry, and closer examination of the â€œSmartTouchâ€ registry keys.
In HTC Album (which has been demonstrated with multitouch) we find this:
Which looks very similar to the settings in a Diamond ROM:
For Excel, we find something slightly different, with the â€œEnableOneMessageâ€ which may enable zooming without sending two mouse events simultaneously (something that WM canâ€™t support, so it canâ€™t do multitouch).
In Opera, we have something different again!
This doesnâ€™t have the â€œEnableOneMessageâ€ setting, and as Iâ€™ve previously suggested may well support multitouch all by itself.
We will only know for certain when we get our hands on a device with a shipped ROM, but for some this may well be good news.
Iâ€™m not to much of a fan of multitouch, but thatâ€™s just me!
