Multi-touch update comes to the Google Nexus One (pinch to zoom)

Google has released a system update for its Nexus One smartphone running the Android OS 2.1. With this update, we'll see multi-touch support including "pinch to zoom."

Now here's what I want to know: Why didn't Google release the Nexus One with multi-touch support? Why did they have to release an update? The HTC Droid Eris has multi-touch support. The Nexus One is made by HTC, even though it's branded as a Google smartphone.

Well, in any case - I'm glad that the Nexus One users can now leverage the capacitive touch screen when they're browsing the web.
