Video iPod? - Image courtesy MacShrine

Full screen video madness

Is this the real Video iPod? MacShrine has a picture of what appears to be a full screen iPod. These photos match up pretty well with the drawings from the US Patent and Trademark Office we posted a few weeks ago detailing a touch sensitive GUI for portable devices. Apple appears to be combining gestures into a form where a user will not have to use any form of clicking or pressing buttons. As it appears currently, the pictures indicate that users will be able to navigate the entire user interface by using gestures exclusively.

Figures that something like this pop up as soon as I pick up a 30GB 5G iPod.

It does look somewhat generic but thena gain it is just abig screen.. with no visable buttons of any sort! Every other video player i have seen have some sort of buttons on the side of the devices and speakers etc so this is definitely more of a simple design. Plus throw in the touch screen and the interface and the virtual touch click wheel and i think the enjoyment of using it will be the same if not better.
I am just worried about finger prints on the screen lol.

Also i would liek to knwo hwo big this is, the size of a current ipod or larger? will you be able to conenct it to current docks (such as my bose sounddock) or will the dock connect be on the long side.
