Some of the links on the in the second thread are broken but you can get good info.
A week or two ago when the touch screen info was leaking out I was very skeptical. However it seems like they may have implemented it similar to an iPhone which could be very cool.
The G10 seems to be lacking the articulated LCD (which is very useful) but it may be thinner than the G1 (approaching GF1) but with a grip and viewfinder.
It seems pretty clear the big news this year will come later for Photokina where a GH2 is expected.
