I hate the Twiggy look too. I believe it was one of the reasons an AF 3MP cam wasn't added. The module was too thick.

The battery life is weak; but since I always have my iPt4 docked, it's a non-issue for me. Still, a larger battery is in order for those who use it as a portable device.
Yes it is not a big issue when near an AC outlet. I do use my iPt4 outdoors for tracking satellites. I like to watch and photograph satellites when they pass overhead at night time. The only decent apps are iOS ones. Occasionally I'm out at a park for more than 3 hours and the battery will get too depleted. I had one of the recalled Mobic (sp?) cases which had another battery and provided a lot more thickness. However that case never performed well as far as the battery went, but it sure felt nice in my hand! It cost about $60 I think, so it was a huge disappointment. Hopefully if they use the same form factor for the iPt5 as the iPhone5 then more cases will be available. But Apple and a lot of other companies are notorious for making each new model different enough to cause older cases to no longer fit. That way they get us to buy accessories as well as a new device!
