    Is it a software update or a whole new Nano? So will last year's iPod Nanos not have the new clock faces? Or will there be an update for it that has all the new goodies?

    I don't see physically why it can't... but the Classics never got updated with the new UIs... so I am hoping they don't screw us 2010 iPod Nano owners over.

    Yep, updated both mine and my wife's 6th Gen Nanos to v1.2 and got the Nike+, option to do large icons and all the new watch faces. Incidentally, I noticed that some of the new watch faces are color coordinated to match the color of the Nano. Wife's is pink and some of the faces are pink, while mine is red and the same watch faces are red on mine. Kinda of a cool incidental finding.

    It's just software. I updated my old nano tonight and got all of the features as far as I can tell.

    Got it thanks!

    I posted this an hour after the announcement this morning and didn't see any update links... so I was curious if it was software or hardware at the time.

    I'm very happy to see that Apple allowed us to simply update the software to get the new features. Very nice surprise actually, since I felt sure they'd try to milk more money out of us. :)
