iPhone apps vs battery life

If you know me or check out this site from time to time, you know how much I’m looking forward to the upcoming 3G iPhone and iPhone v2.0 software.

I need the wireless MS Exchange support (yesterday). 

Today over lunch we were talking about the iphone battery life and how the upcoming slew of iPhone apps will drain the battery big time. Or apps need to be optimized to efficiently deal with power. 

The iPhone needs a removable battery. I asked Marco if he thought Apple would add that to the 3G iPhone.  Marco said “no, way”.

I bet he’s right but I hope he’s wrong.
