The battery is removable as is clear in all the take aparts. It's
quite similar to the ipod arrangement, which is also no big deal to
replace. This whole issue is kind of a red herring in my opinion.

The AA or AAA this is a pipe dream as the form factor of these
devices doesn't allow for that. Generally the batteries are readily
available (for iPods), from several sources other then Apple. Not a
problem in my mind.

The AT&T thing is total deal breaker though, I do agree.
