Motorola Droid gets multitouch, but only in Google Maps for now

When Nexus One owners were suddenly blessed with multi-touch support on their handsets, we saw the same comment posted just about everywhere we looked: “Great! Now when will the Droid get it?”

The answer, it seems, is today.

Just a few hours ago, reports started coming in that an update for Google Maps had just found its way to the Droid Market. It bumps the version number up to 3.4, which just so happens to be the same version that got sent out to Nexus Ones – and sure enough, pinch-to-zoom multitouch gestures are in place.

Alas, Maps stands alone when it comes to new-found multitouch support. At the moment, the multi-touch enabled Browser and Gallery apps now found on the Nexus One have yet to make their way down the pipes.
