I hope not, that would be the end of me buying any new Kobos. Capacitive touch and my skin don't get along well, and reading when it's cold outside and you need gloves makes it impossible to turn pages. And I refuse to spend $30+ on special gloves to be able to turn pages but that won't keep me warm.
