Early HTC HD2 ROM Had Pinch to Zoom in Manila
Remember back when the HD2, known internally to HTC as the “Leo”, was seeing daily leaks? The Windows Mobile world was in a whirlwind over what would be the first capacitive-touch Windows Mobile device. In turns out that the early HD2 ROM had a feature that never made it to the final product: pinch to zoom in Manila (also known as TouchFLO 3D or HTC Sense). This feature would allow the user to zoom into a specific part of TouchFLO 3D without the soft keys disappearing. Additionally, a square would appear that would show you where in the frame you were zoomed to. While this would have made a cool party trick, we’re glad HTC canned the feature because it really wouldn’t have much utility in day to day use.
