Does the iPod Nano 7th-gen have GPS support?

I saw the Nike+ Fitness app on the home screen of the new iPod Nano and was curious if had GPS? Or how does location work if you were on a run, hike, or bicycle ride?

previous versions have had to either hook up to the Nike + receiver that goes in your shoe, or just base it off of the built in pedometer. Without the nike+ adapter it's technically a glorified pedometer. ALthough the new version has bluetooth that you can hook up to heartrate monitors and other fitness tools, but no GPS.

"Since Nike+ support and a pedometer are built into iPod nano, there’s no need to connect a receiver or use a shoe sensor to track your steps, distance, pace, time, and calories burned."
