    Now that the new nano is running some kind of IOS, and has the ability to rotate the home screen with multitouch, could that feature be transferred to the iPhone and iPod touch? I have no programming skills so this is purely a question, I have no idea if this can be done. But I do know that software features from iPhone can be transferred to the iPod touch because they both run IOS.

    Why would you want to, the iPhone and iPod touch have accelerometers for exactly this purpose.

    It doesnt run iOS. It's a basic iPod OS that looks like iOS. Don't be fooled.

    So it would rotate only when you want it to. Without having to mess about with a rotation lock. It would just be simpler.

    Yeah!
    I mean, the iPod and iPhone are pretty small themselfes, so the new nano looked like the iPod touch and the shuffle's son.

    So back on topic:
    I think that the new Nano is really running iOS because if it was running
    iPod OS it would have menus like all of the other iPods (Excluding the touches and phones).
    And, try SBRotator. You just tilt your iDevice in the direction, and SBRotate will compensate!

    So, When showing your friends, just fake the 2 fingers thing =D

    Nah, it isn't running iOS. They've just made a new version of the iPod software and made it look like iOS.
