According to bug 671833 and its duplicates, a file input with the multiple attribute will not bring up an input dialog at all. This is a very bad UX interaction; we should ensure that if we don't have the ability to choose multiple files we still act like a non-multiple file input.
Indeed, other Web browsers on Android currently seem to ignore the @multiple element, falling back to the same behaviour as what they do for single files:

- Android browser (checked on 2.3.3, Samsung Galaxy S 2) is able to select a single file via an external program (e.g. Picture Gallery, Music, third-party file manager)
- Opera Mobile 11.10 has it own file-picker, but still limited to picking a single file.

Tapping on the "Browse" button under "Multiple files" on http://alexandre.alapetite.fr/divers/vrac/20110821-input-file-multiple.html should prompt you to select an app (e.g. Gallery) to choose a file.
