As was discussed very recently in another thread (See posting dated Sun Jun 22
17:20:17 2008), just because a device uses a touch screen doesn't make it
inaccessible for visually impaired users.

Let's wait and see what the user interface is like and then we can judge
whether visually impaired users can work with it or not. Don't rule it out
just because it has a touch screen, until we find out how the touch screen
gets used.
