Are there new API's in Windows Phone 7 (Mango) which need new phone hardware? Gyroscope stuff?

BTW, is AppHub the only Microsoft's official forum for WP7? Registration page is asking for 'Publisher name', website and payment? I just want to ask questions in the forum.

A moderator on the Microsoft answers forum said "all existing devices will get Mango". That seems to suggest they all support it. The one area that might require handset changes could be language support.
