Apple iPhone batteries last only 40 minutes?

John C. Dvorak caused some stir this week. Based on what a source at Cingular told him he reported to the world in a podcast that the batteries of Apple's famous iPhone will last just 40 minutes.

Dvorak heard from the anonymous source that the iPhone has lots of issues.

Oen of these issues appears to be the lack of sufficient battery life:
Dvorak said that the iPhone was blighted with not having a removable battery, so "you run 20 minutes and you’re using up half the battery power. You get 40 minutes total talk time. And the interface fouls up constantly."

The Cingular geezer or geezerette asked Dvorak not to tell anyone. OK it is a "man in the pub told me" style story, but it does not mean that there is no truth behind it. Certainly it is an odd thing to make up.
