Is the GPS chip user-swappable?
Serious question, is there FM radio circuitry inside? I can't go through the pics now.
I would like to know if the Super AMOLED panel is fused to the glass???
My screen is absolutely perfect right now with zero dead pixels or dirt/dust under the screen. I really hope it stays perfect for the next two years. If the front glass is physically fused/sealed to the display panel, I see no reason to worry about dust accumulation in the future.
My old iPhone 3G had tons of dust between the glass and the LCD. I've also seen some disturbing pictures of HTC products such as Nexus One, Evo 4G and the Incredible with some serious dust issues.
From what I've read they are not fused together but there is glue/ tape involved. It is apparently quite easy to remove with a hairdryer though.
Not to mention the OEM LCD panels come with the tape you need to reinstall it.
