Apple hit by lawsuit over iphone complaints

Some news sources wrote that the battery could not be replaced by users, Business 2.0 writes that Apple may not have made it clear that the battery would have to be replaced by AT&T until after the phone was launched.

So, Apple gets a class action suit and some complaints.

It is hard to believe that the legal action will prevail. Since the battery is sealed in the phone, the replacement characteristics are obvious. But, the issue could hurt iPhone sales.

Cell phone users have become accustomed to walking into a store and buying a replacement battery. After about 400 charges the iPhone battery begins to lose its power to hold new charges and the cost to replace the battery is $80.

No matter how cool the phone is, the battery replacement will cost as much as buying some new handsets do. Some cell phone users just won’t buy that.
