They should have invited iFixit over and done a joint teardown.

Oh well, pigs don't fly either, so I shouldn't have hoped for it :D
Yeah the teardown shows that we will not be able to remove our battery. Not that it should be a surprise considering the Ipad battery replacement program, should have been our first cue.

Not really sure why I saw people on here quoting engadget saying that the battery was indeed removable.

Edit: lmao, as soon as I posted this, engadget posted an article on how it probably won't be removable :p

Didn't really like this phone on first leak images. But as this hype grows and i look at the images more and more I like it! Super excited for this summer. It looks like a super quality device.

Steve Jobs is going to be super pissed when he sees his prototype iPhone torn apart like that. I really feel sorry for Jason Chen. :(

Whether or not it's meant to be user replaceable, it looks like it'll be a lot easier to replace it than before.
This. As long as there's no void warranty sticker over the battery I'm game for DIY replacements. :)

Hint: Apple don't listen to this post please ;)
