Yes, I've had exactly the same experience. I was listening to a podcast with about 20% battery remaining, when the screen went completely blank and sounds stopped. Strange thing is it's still turned on... I can hear the blips when I get a text, for example, and when I try putting it onto charge it gives the audio it makes the usual noise. But no display, and no amount of holding buttons down makes it come on.
Actually, after a bit of searching I found the tip to hold down the screen and home buttons for 8 seconds. It reset fine.
I'd previously only been aware of the soft reset ie holding screen for 4 seconds - which was no use when you can't see the bar to slide. There's an awful lot of little iTips that aren't very well documented.
Anyway, all easily sorted. My love affair with my new iPhone can continue.
