Details

The samsung galaxy pro (a 256 meg ARMv6 device) has a touch screen but it's not multitouch. Apart from double-tap there doesn't appear to be a way for me to zoom content on it, which is kind of annoying for browsing. We should add some other way to zoom.
In XUL Fennec we ended up making such devices unsupported. Do we have any idea how common this is?
I don't really know how common it is, no. Also blassey pointed out that the Galaxy Pro (which actually may or may not be a 256-meg device) has a QVGA screen resolution which is below our minimum requirements. So I don't know if we care about this particular device.

CC'ing Irina though, maybe she knows what proportion of low-end devices don't support multitouch. It would be good to find out.
