Touch screen device, method, and graphical user interface for determining commands by applying heuristics
A computer-implemented method for use in conjunction with a computing device with a touch screen display comprises: detecting one or more finger contacts with the touch screen display, applying one or more heuristics to the one or more finger contacts to determine a command for the device, and processing the command. The one or more heuristics comprise: a heuristic for determining that the one or more finger contacts correspond to a one-dimensional vertical screen scrolling command, a heuristic for determining that the one or more finger contacts correspond to a two-dimensional screen translation command, and a heuristic for determining that the one or more finger contacts correspond to a command to transition from displaying a respective item in a set of items to displaying a next item in the set of items.

Im from jamaica (W.I) and im waiting on my N97 ordered from dell.com..got it for $525 usd. but hey, i do hope the v11 firmware is already updated on it. in my opinion this phone is the BEST smart/multimedia phone out now, plus it can be bought unlocked, unlike the I-phone 3GS. 5mp camera, dvd like videos, N-gage games, ovi, decent wifi, aesthetics.. bugs apart, this is the sh&%!!

If is it not too difficult for you, go to the US patent office site and enter patent NUMBER 7,479,949.and inform yourself.
This means that only Apple can legally use the multitouch gestures it is their own intellectual property, stop your BS.

Anyone who always used Nokia phones will be proud to have this phone, and if you flow more to Sony Ericsson phones then you will go for the X1. The trouble for me is that I like both companies. They are both at the top of the game.
Whether you need the Sony Ericsson Xperia, or Nokia N97, you get them free and at the cheapest contract price from http://www.ukmobilephonenetworks.com
Although the phone is quite packed with features but the overall feel and experience of the device is quite pathetic. For so many Bucks it looks and feels far from impressive in hand. The display too aint that impressive. I am keeping my Xperia as it looks and feels like real cool stuff and not some cheap toy that plays vintage attari games. NOKIA better hire good designers soon...
mine has frozen about 3 times a day for a week now, and sometimes when i receive calls, the screen stays blank and doesnt tell me. also doesnt play ringtone etc. i know this because i tried ringing myself.
ive been waiting since nov for this phone and am disappointed. also upgraded the firmware to no avail.
