Already the first dissasembly pics are starting to appear. http://images.macnn.com/macnn/iphone/dis/7-21-1.jpg

Looks like battery replacement is a non-issue:thumbup:
Take two: it's apparently soldered to the logic board, so maybe not for the nervous. Replacing with a connector may not be a big deal though.

Here is http://thinksecret.com/archives/iphonetakeapart/index2.html another take - they destroyed theirs in the attempt to separate the logic boards.

Poor iPhones... they could have shipped them over here... to us!

They went to Mac Heaven before they had their time to shine :(

Interesting to see that it has an ARM processor inside - shares something with the Newton!

I remember that someone mentioned Apple had gone to Intel because they wanted the Intel chip for the iPhone... So much for that idea ;)

Intel's Xscale processor is bassed on ARM so there is kind of a link there....just. Intel sold xscale though so to put in an intel chip would mean one of the core line or whatever it is running the appletv....for a mobile you want something that isn't going to suck the juice out in 10 minutes.
