    I know it was advertised otherwise... but lets dream:
    Look at the pictures here:

    http://www.apple.com/iphone/technology/specs.html

    Certainly that black strip in the sideview picture on the back at the inferior 1/3 of the phone is diferent from any previous Ipod model... Why?

    I dream it is actually a removable battery phone.... Please maybe next version?

    For me is suspicious though...

    Antenna? IIRC from the FCC stories last week the back of the device (the shiny bit) is aluminium (a word you might spell differently ). If aluminium blocks radio waves (I don't know if it does or doesn't) a radio-transparent plastic bit might be required so that it can work as a phone.

    I do indeed, but then I'm English, so what do I know about the language?

    Me too - after all in the US they still use the English word "fall" for what we now refer to by the French import "autumn"!

    I can't help but note that there's a difference in the meaning of the word 'ho' in US English and English English. Here's the English English one:

    ho

    exclamation

    1 an expression of surprise, admiration, triumph, or derision: Ho! I'll show you.
    [in combination ] used as the second element of various exclamations: what ho! | heave ho.

    2 used to call for attention : ho there!
    [in combination ] dated, chiefly Nautical used to draw attention to something seen: land ho!

    ORIGIN natural exclamation: first recorded in Middle English

    In the US however ...
