    Based on the 3G iPhone guided tour, there appear to be two small screws on the bottom of the device on either side of the standard docking connector. This is a stark design change from a company that is known for hiding screws from sight on handheld devices like the former iPhone and iPods. As of this moment it is unknown why the screws are exposed, though some have speculated that removal and replacement of the battery and other components may be possible (the first-generation iPhone was criticized user-inaccessible battery. Positioning of the screws indicates that, when they are removed, the iPhone 3G may open up like a clam for easy access to the inside.

    To sum it up:
    A replaceable battery may be coming soon but it is not proven yet.

    I added a poll to see what you guys think. Of course no one knows for sure but just want to know your opinions.

    Yes and No

    I believe the answer is Yes and No. My guess is that, yes, the screws when removed will assist in gaining access to the interior of the iPhone 3G. However, the battery will most likely be soldered in, which while some people have the tools and experience, most average consumers will not be able to de-solder the stock battery and solder in the new ipodjuice battery or other third party company battery you might find on the net. So i think the answer is yes and no.

    yeh, i also noticed the screws as well. but im not sure if they could replace the iPhone battery.
    and the screws dont look like high security. its just the same size as they use for glasses.
