I very much doubt it. The new Pods appear to be OSX-based. Could be wrong though.

The newer ones might be using a completely different architecture - the nano is also a different screen aspect ratio, and I doubt they've clogged up the firmware with code that checks to see what the screen size is. Apple may also choose not to allow it for sales purposes.

It's possible, I just don't think it's likely.
