    I am interested in this new machine...
    but what I do not know is if the battery dies or something can it be replaced easily?
    Or is it like the Ipod (breaking it open replace?)

    What I would like to know is if they can make the iPad battery last 8 hours with such a large screen does that mean the next generation iPhone will have better battery life? or is the battery bigger and not able to fit into an iPhone?

    If they use the Apple A4 in the next iPhone they might be able to bump up the battery. Steve Jobs talked to Walt Mossberg after the keynote and he told him the chips in the iPad hardly uses any power, it's the screen who does.

    But I don't know if it's a bigger battery or the A4 which gives the iPad the battery time, probably a combination of both.
