    so...apple kept saying how they invented (and patented) a great new multi-touch technology on their phone, but, what features on the phone acutally use this?

    As far as I could tell, only the photo viewer uses it when zooming in and out. Is this correct?

    It might interest you to note that the iPhone is still in development. This means that any statement about the limitations of MultiTouch are WAGs.

    I believe every application uses Multitouch; the keyboard, for example, uses Multitouch.

    I'm not buying an iPhone - but I really, really can't wait to try out Multitouch in an Apple store!!!

    you know, this brings up another interesting point that i've been thinking about

    two people now, and myself and a friend of mine all are saying that we will wait until version 2 of the iPhone, if to many people are thinking this way, the iPhone might not do as well, and if it does't do good, there might not be a version 2.

    I've thought that mabye I should buy one to support apple.

    i will just correct you a little bit:

    Apple invented "putting multi touch tech in their phone", the tech itself was there decades ago.

    Thanks for the link. Goes to show that technology sometimes needs a long time to go mainstream.

    Even if you and your friends are going to wait til the Second version I'm sure theres still plenty of people that will buy it when its released. I probably wont have the money til the second version comes out, but if I did I'd buy version 1, just imagine, 10 years from now when the iphone will be a holographic image being cast out of a wrist watch, that Version 1 will be quite a collectors item.:)

    I'm sure multi touch will play a big part in the games that could be offered for the iPhone.

    I agree, and I am sure that they will use the internal accelerometers to have an awsome set of games...
