No, multitouch isn't about gestures, it's about using two points of
contact at the same time. This is not supported by the hardware of the
770 or N800 (AFAICT) so changing the software won't do any good.

Gestures, however, are supported - for example the up stroke on the
virtual keyboard to invert case. There could be some more interesting
things done with them, I feel though (not sure what... ;-))
