A recently filed touch sensitive display patent application from Apple shows how a full screen iPod video is supposed to work.
The invention pertains to gestures and methods of implementing gestures with touch sensitive devices. Examples of touch sensitive devices include touch screens and touch pads. The invention also pertains to user interfaces and methods of implementing user interfaces with displays.

When Apple's previous iPod Video hit store shelves with a tiny 2.5" screen sporting a 320x240 pixel resolution, Apple proponents and opponents alike criticized the company for not ditching the passé "wheel" and opting for a larger screen instead. The touch display described in the patent seems to give the best of both worlds.
