another thing, Ipods for the most part, have a better user interface. I
personally can't wait for this to happen. Thank you to the rockbox team for
all your efforts.

It won't be an iPod user interface with RockBox on it, it will be more like
RockBox is now.
Whatever iPod has for a user interface will be non-existant on the device.
As far as it being tactile enough for use with the Blind, it will definately
take a few Blind users to try it out, as the sighted usually aren't used to
doing things this way.
You'd be surprised how some people upon losing their sight can't dial a
phone. Most newly Blinded folks figure out that it is not hard to do, but
some never do.
