Default Does the Samsung Galaxy S Wifi 4 support multi-touch?

I was just checking out samsung official page for the US version of the galaxy s player and i was looking at the specs and i noticed that the screen specs say

Galaxy S Wifi 4

Display 4.0” WVGA Super Clear LCD




Galaxy S Wifi 5

Display
5.0” WVGA TFT LCD (Multi-touch zoom)


Does this mean that the wifi 4's screen does not support multi-touch or is this just a typo?

It's not a typo, it's just superfluous info that they added under 5.0, but not 4.0.

The gallery app on my 4.0 works fine with two-finger pinch and squeeze. The screen response time is very impressive as well. A multi-finger test app suggests the screen will only detect 4 fingers at a time though.

It's a pretty small amount, relative to some other products, but it's nothing that you are likely to run into a problem with unless you have extra hands.

My old motorola xoom for example, could detect 16 different multitouch inputs at a time.

Damn lol that's a bit ridiculous if you ask me, why put it there? It's not like anyone will ever use that feature, Where would 16 multi-touch inputs come in handy?

Both are multitouch. 4.0 supports 5 inputs at the same time while the 5.0 only supports 4 at the same time.

That has already been said months ago but because of the US release I/we have to repeat most of that has already been said before...
