Multitouch now possible in 5800
IPhone has been the only phone with Multi Touch feature . HTC G1 does not have it .. But there’s a possibility of Nokia 5800 getting multi touch support as demonstrated in this video
This is what the creator this video has to say
This video demonstrates the experimental multi-touch system I developed on the 5800.
The game idea was a simple derivative of guitar hero or DDR whereby you press a button or buttons along with the music.
The two major problems with this idea on this specific platform are:
1) Button layout, the buttons need to be in an easy to reach location , but also that will not require the phone to be shifted around to reach other keys. also when pressing the buttons its important that the main game play area is not obscured by the players hands.
2) most touchscreen devices are still only single touch capable. this severly reduces the number of button presses available. unlike a traditional keypad which allows for combos.
Both of these issues have been overcome as you can see in the video. The game is very early on in design but the underlying technology is the real product that i’m showcasing.

Please let me know your thoughts, I’m also looking for a good graphic designer to help with graphics and a few people to play-test when its a little further along the development chain.
This will be a freeware game
