    1. Does anyone know if the new nano requires the Apple headphones to use the FM radio. It says that the antenna is the wire. Wondering if that extends to all headphones?

    2. Did the price just go up in the UK despite the US price drops? Last I checked an 8GB nano cost £109 in the UK. The new 8GB is £115.

    A little bit of here and a little bit of there.
    all wires can work as antenna.

    I don't know about your second question. I'm just a lowly american.

    It went up in price due to the camera -- obviously it would be more expensive.

    But yeah ... Looks like they increased it for you folks.

    The 8GB has gone up slightly however, the 16GB version has a price drop (i think the old 16GB used to cost something like £160?)

    So i guess what this means is that the price for the unit has gone up to cover the cost of the camera but they arnt charging as much for the storage this year.

    Im happy with the 16GB price though, its not ideal for people who want to buy 8GB Nanos though...not everyone wants a camera.

    Guess you cant please everyone though :)

    Does it allow FM transmitting as well? And does it support the apple earbuds that have the remote?

    I would think it's only a receiver and not an FM transmitter. Would have been nice to have HD radio though.
