At a guess I would say no. The ipod uses a much more powerful processor than the arduino and I guess this has a built in LCD graphics driver.

It would be good if you could us ipod screen but it's more effort than it's worth, i've bought this http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=320606628830&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT#ht_500wt_705 and it's workinig on my mega right now, it has a 16 bit data bus but you could use it on a Duemilanove if you used a latch for the upper 8 bits, i also have coming this http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=300495582567&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT#ht_3535wt_924 which even comes with a breadboard adapter, better still, an arduino library is available, so i cannot wait for this to arrive
