I'm considering getting a pulse as a cheap way to start developing for Android.
Does anyone know if the device might support multitouch if the OS was upgraded to Android 2?
Seems to be a lot of confusion about the screen tech on the Pulse.

if the G1 can do it im sure the pulse should be able to also. just a matter of "if" the pulse gets an android update any time soon.
It doesnt have anything to do with the Pulse needing an update. The g1 supported this on 1.5 (same version of android as the pulse has). However the code to support multi touch has to be implimented in pulse kernel. To do this we need the kernel source, which should be along in the next week or two.
It's definitely capacitive. Therefore theoretically it can do multitouch.

I think the Pulse only uses synaptics_i2c_rmi_tm1319.c and cypress_cpt_i2c_ts.c
cypress_cpt_i2c_ts.c has an interesting feature, CONFIG_CYPRESS_TOUCHSCREEN_MULTIPOINT, but enabling it doesn't make any noticeable difference as far as I could tell.
Even if you successfully merge the cyanogen mod changes into synaptics_i2c_rmi_tm1319.c and it were to work, how would apps be able to use it? The 1.5 API doesn't have multitouch support. How did the HTC Hero do it? Did they use a hack?
Putting this on hold for a few weeks, till I get a little more experience with the android kernel
phonemypc app works with multitouch on the pulse
Does that mean that multitouch is already enabled in the kernel?
