Embedded Battery?


Jan 10, 2007, 2:27 PM
It appears that the IPhone would have an embedded battery, and I think that would be a major oversight in design, especially for the business-end user. Any thoughts?

That's how they do things - embedding the battery is a design choice, and it saves space. That's how the iPods have always been.

Speaking of Business end users. . . they get nothin'

From the BMG Q&A

Q. Will I be able to get this device under my existing BMG contract (CRU)? Why not?
A. BMG customers will not be eligible for the first version of the device. Cingular will be selling through Cingular retail, Direct Marketing/Direct Response and The iPhone will also be available in Apple stores and on

Q. Will my corporate discount (IRU) apply to this device? Why not?
A. The agreement between Cingular and Apple does not allow discounts on the device.

Q. Will this device support corporate email?

Yes, but it has a standard iPod dock connector on the bottom, which means a HUGE range of external battery and charging options will be available from day one.

Hard to say at this point, but it's certainly possible.
