    looks like Gizmodo is holding onto the juicy bits of info for gradual leaking

    Bah still can't see the CPU. It's crazy how small that logic board is!

    To me, that equals a fail.

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

    Heh, so that battery IS user removable? Or will it not be in the consumer version?

    from the looks of it to me, no.

    It's under some backplate attached to some screws and a circuit board.

    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. :(

    The size of that logic board makes me think there's an A4 under there.

    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 ;)

    Yes, they always wanted to improve on battery with every update.
    Hope battery tech evolves also so you won't need to take up 2/3 of the space Available just to power the device.

    As long as the other components have the same performance once shrunk, I see no problem :)
