Samsung Galaxy Spica Now Has MultiTouch

September 8, 2010 - Written By Chris Yackulic

When you buy a Samsung i5700 Galaxy Spica it really doesn’t come with multitouch out of the box. With the power of Android, that doesn’t mean it can’t do it at all. For some weird reason Samsung decided to not include multitouch when in reality the hardware is fully capable to do so. So in the interest of all those Spica owners who are feeling behind the times who felt left out with just one touch navigation, click, and zoom, the feature has been hacked into the handset. This hack has enabled some software drivers that have been made available to those brewing up custom Spica ROMs. Its unfortunate for those of you that won’t be able to get the full functionality if you aren’t rooted and running a custom firmware build. Hopefully if enough protest Samsung will implement it in an update.
