Legal I guess this is what some people would call "karma". Apple may shout off the rooftops that it invented multitouch, and that anyone else using it is clearly stealing it from them - but another company has taken offence to that, and has slapped the Cupertino giant with a patent infringement suit over multitouch.

It's hardly obvious when no other cell manufacturer is doing it... and now all of a sudden several are building it in.

These things are only obvious once you've seen it in action.

The problem is they did exist before the iPhone.

The iPhone wasn't the 1st multi touch cell phone let alone non-phone multi-touch interface and gestures have existed in software years before the iPhone too.
