ipod nano 1 2 update
From Apple's press release announcing the new iPod nano:

iPod nano now features larger icons for even easier navigation of its intuitive Multi-Touch user interface, and you can choose from 16 new digital clock faces, ranging from classic analog looks to your favorite Disney characters including Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse. iPod nano now tracks your runs and walks right out of the box with no accessory required, making it even easier to get your fitness program up and running. iPod nano can track the time, pace and distance of your run, the calories you burn, and the number of steps you walk. iPod nano encourages you with motivational real-time voice feedback during your run, available in seven languages, while listening to your favorite music or FM radio station. You can also easily upload workouts to the Nike+ website to set goals, track your progress and challenge friends.

ipod nano 1 2 update description
In addition to the new iPod nano models introduced today, Apple has made the software update available to the previous-generation models released in September 2010. Those iPod nanos carry the same form factor as the current models, and will be essentially identical to the current iPod nanos once the software update has been applied.

Wait, I though Apple always wants to force people into buying the newest model. :p I thought that whenever they say a new model has higher specs (and therefore can run certain features reliably that the older model would run poorly) that it was all lies! So how can they be offering this free upgrade? :) Why not just "lie" again and say that only the new nano can run the new software well enough?

Bummer they didn't update the Nano with some kind of wireless communication. I think the idea of the Nano as a "wearable" extension to an iPhone is pretty slick. Notifications for new email, SMS, phone call, maybe a couple of quick SMS reply functions.

So really there is no 2011 model Nano, its the 2010 model with a software update and a new model number slapped on the back. Cant wait for the iFixit teardown.

Now they've given it a more watch like display, are there any good watch straps for it?

Lunatik and Tiktok straps are awesome. http://lunatik.com/

If the nano's screen was so "intuitive" it wouldn't have needed an update to make the icons larger.
