    I've lost my source for this information (I'll try to hunt it down later), but the maker of the touch screen for the Nexus One makes three different versions: A single touch; a dual touch; and a multi-touch. The Nexus One uses the dual touch, so it is not a true multi-touch screen.

    Yea, I'm running 2.2 FRF91 and I tested the Multi-touch and it's not 'fixed' or any different from the video shown, unfortunately.

    Needless to say, I don't need multi-touch to be impressed with the Nexus One. Multi-touch or not, IMHO it ousts the iPhone =), but then again, that's just me!

    Thanks... that's the one.

    But, anyway, the point was that it's NOT a multi-touch screen, just dual touch. That's an important difference that will impact people that think that the Nexus One will have full support for "true" multi-touch gestures. It will not.

    No it hasn't worked perfectly.....but like you said you haven't noticed the problem.
    No... I didn't say "noticed."

    There has never been problem with my touch screen. As other have testified, it seems to be just a few handsets that have the so-called problem, possibly the earlier builds.

    It does indeed cross the axis. Download that multi touch test app on market and it'll happen to you too. I've gone through 2 nexus ones, both of them were made very recent (att version) and they both had this "problem". You didnt notice it because it usually doesn't effect anything, especially with pinch and zoom because even though the fingers cross, it still works fine. So unless you have a specific app that tests your multi touch, it shouldn't effect it.

    Exactly - the trouble is that many (most) users keep calling it "multi-touch" which is a trademark of Apple. Frankly, I've never seen an official Google or HTC document that referrers to it as "multi-touch." All I've ever seen is "Pinch to Zoom." And in that context, the screen works perfectly.

    I wonder if the switch to Slcd will fix the multi-touch issue (or to be more "correct" change the screen from dual touch to multitouch)

    yep, same thing on my N1. lame.
