Touchscreen? Minimal value-add on a 5-incher, to be honest. WiFi? Maybe if the browser app can bring in regular (non-mobile) web sites. In other words: I'd be more interested in a 502.
I think a touchscreen would be nice for people even on a 5 inch. I miss being able to just touch a word to look it up in the dictionary. And when entering text it would be much less painful.

I do think a 6-incher based on the 360 would be a winner too. My favorite part of the 360 is it's minimalism—how it doesn't have any extra wasted bezel space and is easy to hold. That was what I liked about my PRS-900.
