You're just looking at the wrong product. That's fine, you have choices. Go exercise them and stop whining about it.
If 8-10 hours isn't enough battery for you to continue "working", you need a vacation. It's been plenty for me, and I appreciate the lack of bulk that would be required to support an access cover, connectors, and the battery support. I swear, everyone that complains about the non-removable battery must never have used it, because it really isn't quite the big deal it's made out to be.
Also we have multitasking, thanks. I would appreciate SD, but there are ways around that. Sometimes you have to compromise. I pick stability and polish over potential storage capacity. iTunes does suck though, I'll grant you that.
