Article was referring to the E-P2, it does not have the control dial or built 
flash, E-PL1 has both.

No control dials?
The E-PL1 will take a shoe mount flash also.

I found this over at dpreview and thought it might help. You might also want to 
look at the reviews of the new E-5 if you already have Olumpus lenses. It's 
prices but said to finally get the best out of Zuiko SHG Glass.
E-PL1 vs E-P2: Key differences
Although the EPL-1 is a less expensive camera than the E-P2 that sits above it, 
it doesn't give much ground to its big brother in terms of specification. The 
biggest differences are the more compact-camera-like interface (and loss of 
control dials), the simplified construction, less sophisticated image 
stabilization system and the addition of the built-in flash.
        * No control dials vs. 2 on the E-P2 
        * Built-in flash (external flashes only on E-P2) 
        * Mainly plastic body with aluminium skined front      (Stainless steel 
alloys for E-P2) 

        * Image stabilization with claimed 3 stop benefit,      vs. 4 stops for 
        * Direct record movie button vs. movies as position      on E-P2 mode 
        * Mono mic with option to add stereo using adapter      vs. built-in 

        * Maximum shutter speed 1/2000th sec, vs. 1/4000th.
