    Sounds to me that the OS just crashed.
    Try the good old soft reset. Just hold volume down and the power button at the same time until your device vibrates. This may take about 10 seconds or so. See if it brings your phone back to life. Don't be afraid, you're not going to lose any of your precious apps or data.

    Keep the power button pressed until you feel the phone buzz (20 secs or so). The phone should then reboot (if there is sufficient battery charge)
