In my case it was the other way around.  After all, it's rare that Apple 
does something as completely baseless as the hockey-puck mouse, so I was 
predisposed to thinking the virtual keyboard would be easy to use.

That is, until I used it.

Not having any tactile feedback on such tiny target areas makes it very 
hard to get used to, and I hear this complaint from about half the 
iPhone owners I know, including some with rather tiny hands, so we can 
rule out hand-size being the determiner for this.

I'm not claiming my tiny sample of anecdotal input says much one way or 
another.  Simply to answer your question, I find tactile feedback very 
useful, and miss it in the iPod.
