I didn't say "Apple's products".
I was referring to LiON batteries in general and if you had clicked the link I provided you would know that. :shake: Do they use some kind of "magic" battery? Did Dear Leader tell you that?
I even used the qualifier "could" in there.
Please try harder next time.
I swear you Apple people are so sensitive. You need to make a "hater" our of everyone despite contrary evidence (like that I own an iPod and a Mac).

Well since comparison was drawn on the 680, and it has a replaceable battery. I put this little thing together.
It is pretty close to cutting it in half.
.8 for the 680
.46 for the iPhone
Also note the 680 has:
1. No Wifi,
2. No 4 or 8GB of flash
3. No bluetooth 2.0
4. .3 MP camera, iPhone has a 2.0MP
5. No 3.5in display
6. 4hr battery life, iPhone 5hr
7. .7 ounces heavier, 680 5.5 ounces, iPhone 4.8 ounces.
Anyone else want to add to that?

Competition? No, but when someone makes false accusations (I'm slamming all Apple products) how dare I defend and clarify my position b/c they cannot take the time to read?

Let me make myself even clearer...for Me personally the nonremovable battery is what ppl call a dealbreaker...I would NOT want to leave my phone with all my info with anybody, be it Apple ot otherwise - apart from cost it is an issue of security..
also convenience and safety are real issues considering I will be out of touch with those I need to be unless I have/carry around a backup phone...it's sad that 10 yrs ago this was a nonissue as I didn't even have one, but times have changed lol!
Anyway as the weight difference between the iPhone and treo 680 is only 0.7 ounces despite the difference in depths i would be willing to take a heavier iPhone if it mean a removable battery - after all they weren't and still aren't under any conviction to keep the phone at 4.8 ounces..it was a design choice not necessity - same with the type of battery.
For that premium price it shouldn't be as limited as it is imo, and I'll wait on the next generations (like maybe the rumoured 3G version coming 6 months later)....

I don't think there is really a way to keep it at that size without adding something to it.
I am impressed with what they managed to cram in there. Typical Apple.

a shortened battery life after a year. what does that mean? are you saying that their capacity/duration of charge becomes lessened? i could understand that, but even then, i personally have never had to replace a battery in any Treo including the blackberries i have owned. from what you say, you did not purchase one but your intentions were to. so i suppose i not ever having to buy one negates you wanting to buy one.
i still don't think oem batteries are replaced, in Treos (non-680 as it's an outlier), by the general public, within a year's time period. do i really care if they are? not really. why? because with all of the Treo's i've owned (and blackberries) i've never had to.
not important to me i suppose. i simply don't think it's all that important to so many others especially those non-Treocentral consumers.

valid question: for all of you who don't care about the iPhone (and you know who you are): do you care about the Treo? if so, why spend so much time here in the Apple iPhone forum? kind'a funny that you do.
looking forward to the release of the iPhone and for Palm to realize that it's the 21st century.

I like this forum because it actually has some good discussion (despite the cheap shots and occasional dumb questions), and the arguments are a good read sometimes!
And we are not TREO lovers because they are treo's, we are "treo lovers" because we love what the treo does. And if Apple were to make a phone that did those things better, we'd ALL buy it.
