This information is wrong. Pocketbook Touch doesn't need a stylus. More: You cannot even use a stylus, because it has a capacitive screen.
Another maybe interesting point for you: PB can also read MOBI-files, so you don't need to convert your exiting books.
I own PRS-T1/T2 and some Pocketbooks. I prefer the Pocketbook Touch.
