    What possibilities will the "trackball" introduce?

    I'm curious what type of capabilities the trackball on the Nexus One will introduce... the first thing that comes to my mind is something similar to "Marble Madness" -- those types of games can benefit from it.

    Also brickbreaker types, just like the default blackberry used to use.

    Wait, I just read that since Multitouch isn't installed on the phone, that NO games will support multi touch?

    That's really depressing for me!

    I thought MultiTouch was in place (i.e. API available), just not used by the default installed apps. I guess new apps can use it. Can anyone try Dolphin browser and check the MultiTouch support?

    i was thinking that in the web, you can select small icons "pages for example" instead of trying to touch it or zooming in then selecting.

    I think the N1 is multi-touch ready in 2.1, but it will be implemented in the next version of android.

    Since this model doesn't include Start/End buttons it would be nice if it was used as a standard push to see call log and to push to a call, it is IMO an essential part of being on the go without looking at your phone, I see the phone and I'm like... they forgot to include them...

    Developers have the option to include Multi-touch in their applications its just for some reason Google did not implement it in any stock apps (browser, mail, etc.)
