No multitouch for Google’s Nexus One?

We know a lot about Google’s Nexus One – although it’s not enough and it’s not official info.

One of the things we didn’t know is that Google’s own Android smartphone doesn’t have multitouch (just like Verizon’s Motorola Droid) – or at least that’s what tnkgrl Mobile says, after playing a bit with the device.

Of course, the multitouch support could be there, but it may have not been enabled by Google for the tested Nexus One – I guess we’ll see that after the smartphone is officially announced.

Some other facts about the Nexus One:

  • It’s fast (faster than the Droid), extremely thin and “much nicer looking in person than in pictures”
  • The display is “probably” OLED, with the same resolution as the Droid (480 x 854 pixels)
  • There is support for T-Mobile 3G, but not for AT&T 3G
  • No dedicated camera key; the camera interface is the same as Droid’s
  • A 4GB memory card is preinstalled
  • There’s a 1400 mAh battery

OK, now all we can do is to hope that Google won’t let us wait too long and announce the handset in the next few weeks.
