Experimental Multi-touch to the Nokia 5800Filed Under Nokia 5800 News,Nokia 5800 Tips N Tricks
Dis you ever felt that your Nokia 5800 should have been multitouch enabled? Jamie Fuller, a hobbyist somehow magically turned that into a reality and proves in the video below how well multi touch application can be run on Nokia 5800.
