Sony Ericsson has confirmed that it has no intentions to implement multitouch gestures on either the X10 mini or X10 mini pro. This is despite the fact that the X10 mini may have the hardware capable of at least dualtouch gestures such as pinch-and-zoom.
Timo Maassmann from the SE Product Blog says that enabling multitouch on the X10 mini handsets would “destroy the simplicity” of using them. Instead, he extols the work that has been done on the UI to make one-handed operation as easy as possible. This includes the four corner shortcuts as well as zooming in and out of pictures using your thumb. Check out a video highlighting this after the break.
