Blu-Ray support

First, thanks for a great product ! dont rush get it as right as you can ...

Second, hope this question is in the right place ,if not apoligies.

Finally cannot seem to find an answer so i thought i would push it out ...

I seem to recall reading that the new Black ATV DID include the internal hardware for possible 1080 Support? Am I misinformed :) if the answer is yes is this a feature that is in the pipeline .....?
