It's a nice enough idea that they could have improved in its next gen, but I wouldn't be surprised if they have made this change due to cost and overall hardware reliability.
Its all very well bringing out something new, but if it costs more and/or is more likely to break than other options without being clearly better to most people then it just doesn't make sense to keep it, but knowing rim it seems unlikely that they won't still try and do something new with this touchscreen to try and distinguish from others.
