Apple has just announced some last moment news that can only be classified as a shocker. The iPhone will now apparently come to the market with an enhanced battery life of 8 hours, as opposed to the January news announcement of only 5 hours.

Apart from talk time, as you may have already guessed, the enhanced battery life jazzes up all other aspects of phone operation too, including standby and audio playback time.The full press release can be found here.
As the world eagerly anticipates the debut of the iPhone, just one day prior to the release, Apple has posted a whole bunch of (obviously) extremely favorable reviews of the iPhone right on their start page.

IMDB seems to have already set up an entry for the feature length movie here with an anticipated release in 2010!
