Kind of clever if you think about it. Partly so they can't somehow hide a bomb in the battery (unlikely), and probably mainly so the phone remains active, and data packets can be snooped as needed.

This is getting ridiculous! If you are carrying a laptop it is quite likely you will use it while waiting to kill some time and watch a movie or two or do some work. So if the battery goes down I have to bin it at the airport?
Any terrorists can always replace the normal one with a smaller capacity one, but same voltage and still get a laptop working. Stupid!

If your right about that, their next announcement should be - no linux or other custom OSes on board.
