I find text editing with a touchscreen very frustrating because of the need to do a two- or three-step each time you want to select text - a mouse is far, far easier to use for purposes like this.

BTW text selection with the 'touchpad' is a breeze compared to using a touchscreen (like the text selection + delete needed to make this post).

The problem I've had with a touch screen is that you don't have the same accuracy as you do with a mouse.   So you have to touch as close as you can to the text, then fiddle with the selection handles to get the exact text you want - that's what I mean by needing to do a "two- or three-step".
