 From experience using the iPhone, you won't miss keys and keypresses  
so much as you'll miss the little bumps on the home keys, and the  
little tactile hints that "there's a key here". Other than that,  
touching a glass screen to interact with the computer is only hobbled  
by the UI design.

Like most novel input devices (Dvorak keyboard, Nostromo SpeedPad, for  
example) it should only take you a couple of weeks to get used to it,  
after which you'll be able to hold your nose a little higher as the  
great unwashed masses complain about how your preferred input device  
can't possibly work...
