Can a TFT Resistive screen be made/used as a multitouch screen?
I have a Android 2.2 SuperPad III tablet which comes with a resistive screen and I am developing an app that needs a few features of a multitouch screen. When testing the tablet for multitouch it fails: it doesn't register 2 different points simultaneously. I know as a fact that Android OS has support for multitouch since I have performed the same tests on a capacitive screen and all tests were successful.
Would it be possible that Android OS disables the multitouch functionality on an resistive screen tablet or is it a hardware limitation? If needed, I don't mind modifying the Android kernel to reflect my needs however I would like to know that the hardware can handle it.
