We thought Android Donut sounded a bit too good to be true yesterday when we saw the latest code, and today that educated guess appears to be correct. According to one Android developer, multitouch is not in the cards.

That developer is one Romaine Guy, an Android framework engineer, and his big revelation today is actually two-part: Donut will not support multitouch, and it is not Android 2.0.

Sad, but the information is still a bit ambiguous, being one line in a Google Groups discussion. We also don't have any additional word on the other features we told you about yesterday, including universal search, text-to-speech, automated backups, a new camera app, supposedly better performance, and CDMA support (ammo for an imminent Sprint launch).
