That might be a fine strategy for an ipod where for some it is clearly more cost effective to pay an extra $40 and buy an new one, but were talking an extra $515 if you apply the same principal to the iphone and but a new one rather than replace the battery.

So with this kind of price differential I feel they will not want a $600 disposable phone so will want a new battery. There is also the remaining period of the two year locking to AT&T to consider. So now they lose their phone for however long the 'send to replace battery, replace battery, send back to user' cycle takes.

There will always be idiots who have to have the newest of anything on the day it comes out.
It's a good thing most people don't fall into this category.
If you really have to have one of these "Apple cash cows", wait for iPhone 2 I'm sure there will be many improvements.  :)

You should be able to get the battery replaced in less than 10 min at an Apple Retail Store once the Geniuses are trained on how to service the iPhone

You would not loose any data as all data is stored on your Mac/PC and synced everytime you plug it in to your computer

One downfall of the iPhone is the lack of support for Flash.

Apple is working on this:

Dan, Apple will lower the price with V2 or some new model as they did with the iPod
