Apple used orange stickers to number the connectors to the logic board 1 through 6.

The camera is located in the upper right corner of the phone. Unfortunately, it connects to the bottom of the logic board, meaning you'll likely need to remove the logic board from the phone to remove the camera. We haven't tried removing the camera, but would assume that like the original phone, the camera can be removed for those wanting to bring their iPhone 3G into secure locations.

A little birdy has told me that TechOnline will be decapping the chips we can't identify tomorrow, after the US release. They soak the chip in an acid bath to eat away the ceramic coating, then use x-rays and other fancy equipment to examine it.
