A lot has been said about the lack of removable batteries on ipods and iphones. Apple is accused of being anti environmental and for creating products which will become obsolete as the user won't be able to keep them going once the battery dies. Well have you actually tried to get a new battery for a mobile phone? My wife's pink LG flip phone thing's battery is on the way out so we went into the Three store and asked about a replacement battery. We were told that unfortunately they didn't sell batteries as the phone was over two years old it is now obsolete. We should soldier on with it and wait a two months before being eligible for an upgrade. I had the same experience with my previous Nokia which was again obsolete. So this myth about replacement batteries is just that, a myth. I would argue that apples built in solution is greener anyway as only one battery is made per phone. With changeable batteries, presumably when the phone is not considered obsolete, millions of replacement batteries will be made I WOULD BET THAT MOST OF THESE WOULD END UP IN LAND FILL AS THE USER WOULD BE UPGRADED ANYWAY. I have now persuaded her to have my iphone and I will get a new one when it comes out- so thanks to LG and Three battery policy I may well get a new new iphone this year!
