Compared to a Palm, the only major drawback I see to an iTouch is the battery life. [ I have an iPhone, which is what I'm basing my comment on. ]
One difference between tapping/swiping on the iPod Touch as compared to a palm device is that you use your fingers on the Touch--on the palm you use a stylus. So, the palm screen definitely doesn't have the same propensity for getting smudged as the Touch.
