The first Windows phone with multi-touch sighted
September 01, 2008 [General] | By Edward J. R.

And indeed one can use 2 fingers to zoom-in/out on photos:



Which company has managed to achieve it?

It is Chinese company Meizu, specialized by now in making of MP3 players, that is preparing a clone of iPhone called "Meizu M8" however by now some people doubted whether this phone will support multi-touch but in a video demonstrating this phone one can clearly see multi-touch:



While Meizu M8 is not a Windows Mobile phone as it runs Windows CE as a basis, not Windows Mobile, it is a phone powered by Microsoft's operating system - Windows CE (here: Windows CE 6.0), that is also the base for Windows Mobile itself. Apart from multi-touch it offers also virtual keyboard with pop-up keys - like in iPhone - that are not offered in HTC phones though.

Conclusion: multi-touch is supported in Microsoft Surface, will be supported in Windows 7 (successor to Windows Vista) and it would be huge mistake not to include multi-touch in Windows Mobile 7 that is being released in February 2009. Meizu company clearly proves, that multi-touch in mobile devices can be done also in phones powered by Microsoft software.

Here is a picture....cannot add it to the main post as I cannot edit here (i think this is the right phone)



Some specs I found at GadgetsTown

Meizu M8. In terms of raw specs, the M8 is said to sport standard GSM,
TD-SCDMA for 3G data, a 3.3-inch widescreen (720x480) display,
Bluetooth, and an ARM11 CPU. What's more, they've upped the ante in the
camera department, beating Apple's picture-taker by one whole
megapixel. The 3MP cam on board is also capable of recording video at
30fps (at the device's full 720 x 480 resolution).
