Some people like to read in the bath, for them a touch screen reader means the classic of just dropping your reader into a ziplock bag may not be an adequate solution to allow them to read in the bath.
I guess that is purely a POV, I wouldn't want an ereader without a touchscreen and less buttons means a smaller Ereader and more realestate for the screen.
You can buy covers for the KT that allow you to read it in a bath with NPS if you really want to.
TBH even with no touchscreen and buttons, I wouldn't be using an ereader in a bath anyway, it could be dropped easily and all that steam/moisture can't be good for it in the longterm, unless you get a waterproof cover for it, which is available on the KT as well.
