Yes, but it's still in there
I have some learning curve yet with the Verizon Branded Google Android. As good or better than any smart phone or WinMobile device I've used, and I started with a bag phone and with WinCE 2000.
I have seen on several Droid developer sites that the gestures are "in there" just not turned on. I have not drilled down into the source far enough yet.
Hmmmmm, is Google afraid getting in a Patents spat with Apple?
