This bit of news isn’t exactly surprising. If Apple has it then I would expect Microsoft to have a similar device. Whether it’s a good thing or not is entirely up to personal preference. As someone who utilizes my Zune quite often for video playback I can’t imagine wanting to smear my finger prints all over the screen. I also like having the tactile feedback of my d-pad many times.
That said, I think it’s an important option for people to have. The potential to have a very large screen is also very appealing so I can’t say I’d discount a touch only device for myself.
