Next Gen iPod Patent Has "Touch Surface" On Back (http://gizmodo.com/gadgets/apple/next-gen-ipod-patent-has-touch-surface-on-back-259271.php).
from Gizmodo.

I thought this looked cool: a scroll wheel on one side and a touch screen on the other.

i think the entire touch interface is on the back, with the front being a non-touch screen. so, would this kind of work like a trackpad only with force feedback?
