Have you used a nexus one with haptic feedback turned on?
It gives a short pulse of the vibe when you press a button so you know it's been acknowledged.

Anyone who has issues with the nexus one buttons working first try isn't using them right
You don't tap them, you swipe if you want it to work every single time.

I am quite happy with the Android platform overall (pretty much agree with Hilman's points).

In regards to the touch-sensitive buttons, I would definitely prefer physical buttons. I've found I end up pressing the buttons by mistake when I'm near the lower portion of the screen, and then I end up backing out of my program unexpectedly. Haptic feedback may give a clue that you pressed the button, but I'd prefer to know my finger is near the button before triggering it (as I can do with a physical key).
