I think the debate was not over whether touch controls are real but whether they are touch controls or not. I'll bet yours are touch controls. If you really shook it hard, is there any danger they would fall off? That would be one sign they are real and not virutal.

iPhone: 115 x 61 x 11.6 mm, 81.4 cm3
Touch: 99.9 x 58 x 13.9 mm, 80.5 cm3
You may be right about small hands but I'm guessing I'd have no problems reaching any part with the thumb of the hand I'd hold it with. I can reach any part of my E61 and it's bigger in all dimensions. I think tapping the main app icons should be fine too, but as with most things iPhone it's a matter of waiting and seeing before you can be sure. That said, I do suspect that many people would use it two-handed much of the time and it might well feel more natural that way.

The iPhone will likely not steal away Treo users.
But it will entice five camps:
1.) Apple Fanboys/girls.
2.) People with money to burn.
3.) People who want the latest gadget.
4.) People who might consider a Treo, but are more drawn to the iPhone.
5.) People looking for a converged iPod/phone.
I think we need to wait a year and see where things are.
But I will say, the hype and excitement is fun.

iPhone will be the new razr in terms of sales etc...but two difft types of phones in 2 difft markets. Most ppl in the business world (or ppl who like to be organised) will have a smartphone and then maybe (if they can afford it and all) a regular phone (iPhone or some competitor from Sony/Motorola)...have no fear the treo is going nowhere (unless BB comes out with a real killer)

The reviews of the Touch I've seen say the new touch features are limited to the launcher, so I'm thinking you'll have the same experience otherwise that you have with any WM device. I haven't used WM so I don't know if that is good or bad.
That said it is a nice little device but doing real work on it may be limited with not 'real' keyboard. That's also the thing abut the Treo (or BB etc) over the iPhone: IMO a real keyboard gives much more flecibility. I just switched from a TX where I used myKBD which was very fast for text entry really, but now having a keyboard I find there are lots of other advantages to the hard keys. And the 5 way seems more efficient to me than having to use two hands to move through applications. I just don't know how functional a keyless device really will be. (HTC Touch does still have a 5 way which I think is a big advantage).

IMO the iPhone should've at least have a nav button - the home button doesn't APPEAR to be a 5-way but who knows?? If not it would've made it that much easier to use. Btw why have a home button at all? They could've had more screen real estate and had a virtual home button too!
