Nokia N8 battery replacement video tutorial

A Torx screwdriver, and less than 10 minutes of your precious time is all it takes to swap the battery of the Nokia N8, supposedly non-removable. There is already a video tutorial how to do this, and potentially void the warranty in the process...

A 12MP camera with advanced image processing is all but useless when the juice runs out...

Damn, but that's complicated - can't imagine doing that too often when I'm stuck out in the wilds miles from the nearest charger. genuine spare batteries are cheap, easily stored and faster than backup chargers or power-packs.

The ability to rapidly swap batteries is a much-overlooked bonus IMO and I think Nokia have missed a trick here with this battery design on the N8.

Their recent X3-02 shows that they can build a slim (9.6mm) device with an easily-swappable battery, so this is all within their gift.

Guess I'll be keeping my bulky N900 for at least another year, then
