Sony Ericsson confirms no multitouch for X10 mini

X10 mini proSony 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.

one-hand zoom in and zoom out! thats cool! i’ll take that over apple’s multitouch.
actually i think that’s a lot better than pinch2zoom. Android should patent this.

@waiting4x10onATT Idiots like you need to read up. Apple DOES NOT OWN MULTITOUCH! That hardware was there way before apple put it on their phones. What apple patented was certain gestures using multitouch. Its practically impossible to patent the whole multitouch because the term is too broad and there are so many different ways to do it…

It sucks to be without multi touch. WTH do they mean by saying that “it would destroy the simplicity”? What about the games where you need to both run and jump? >_< I regret buying this phone NEVER BUY SONY ERICSSON PHONES THEY SUCK AND SE WON'T UPDATE THEM EVER!

Hey Se jerks I have a message for you:
How some ppl can be so stupid?You make the best phones for their prices….i liked the hardware of x10 mini pro and i decided to buy it(i was about galaxy 550 and x10 mini pro) but when i noticed you dick suckers dont upgrade ur x10 family i wass pissed off………………

16 dimos September 26, 2011 at 5:28 PM

Good eveneng.
i would like to ask why?Why you are empty-headed?Se xperia x10 mini(that i own 1) is very good….it have price of 150euros and its better than other smartphones in price of 200euros(europe)….nevermind its very good…..
But you can make it VERRY VERRY BETTER adding android froyo(2.2)[we dont ask much as gingerbread]so we can support flash player and this so difficult?
i can explain you whats difficult……SE DEVELOPERS CANT GET OVER THEIR EGOISM..THEY WANT US TO BUY THEIR NEW HIGH-PRICED PHONES………… that is and the advantage of their ‘great enemies'(samsung,lg and others)….if u cant do that you are idiots
i wont ever again buy se its waste of time and money,my friends so,their friends so and thats how you lose your customers…..BIG IDIOTS
