If users can access content and functionality via native HTML behaviors 
or the 'click' event, then they can easily use it with iPhone's 
touchscreen. If not, then they are also likely to encounter difficulties 
when using the keyboard or speech recognition (for example). This 
reemphasizes the importance of developing all sites with 
input-device-independence in mind.

I'm not sure what you mean about events not working due to "screen real 
estate" though.
