Multi-touch: Many questions to one desire....

Hi guys,

I have thought a bit about multitouch and its possible usecases and the longer 
I think about it the less exciting I find it on a mobile phone.

The technology per se is great and I'm sure it will allow for great innovation 
among UI's on large monitors, tablets, and even desks.

However, on small screen systems such as the Neo (or even the iPhone) -- what 
do you want to do with it? The ubiquitous zooming and rotating examples are 
not convincing me at all. With some clever state logic you can zoom and 
rotate very efficient on unitouch systems.

So... where are those usecases that apply to a phone?
