GSM Motorola Droid (aka Milestone) Gets Multi-Touch Support!?

Illustration for article titled GSM Motorola Droid (aka Milestone) Gets Multi-Touch Support!?

Talk about unfair: this video appears to show that the GSM version of the Motorola Droid will support multi-touch gestures like pinch-zoom. The U.S version doesn't do multi-touch, even though Android 2.0 supports it, so what gives?
