You should be ansolutely fine. I usually put everything I have in my trouser pockets into my cabin luggage just before screening and nobody has ever told me to take my iPod or phone back out.
Come to think of it, I've even had a gift-wrapped item on me without knowing what it was - since it was a gift for me. Airport security (I don't remember where it happened) asked me to take it out for an individual scan, cleared it and gave it back to me with no further questions asked. A common item like an iPod really shouldn't cause any trouble.
Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.
