Nokia N8 battery is removable

So, Nokia has previously claimed that the battery in their newest handset, the Nokia N8, is actually not replaceable by the user. However the guys over at have proved otherwise; they have several photographs that show how the Nokia N8′s battery can be accessed – simply by removing two screws on the lower part of the handset, as you can see below.

If this comes true, then why would Nokia go to the lengths of telling us otherwise? Surely a mobile phone with a replaceable battery is much better than a handset that isn’t – until the device is unveiled I guess we can only assume.
