funny how you forget the rumors after the fact. i guess thats because there are new rumors to look forward to... but kevin's rumor-reputation is tainted.

The dual battery rumor could have been based on the 5 hour talk/video vs. 16 hour music battery life. With just the numbers, it might have been believed that there were two batteries instead of one.

Well he did get the 4 and 8 gigs right. Also I'm not surprised the price was wrong, they could have negotiated the final price less than a week ago. And based on the fact that they hadn't even signed the final agreement with Cisco to use the iPhone name makes me think that they were flying by the seat of their pants on this one.

I read that Apple also leaked faked iPhone specs to their own employees...perhaps he received one of those rumors?
