Well that's what we did so far (amp meter hooking)... That's why I was talking about the old fashioned kind of power benchmarking. This kind of measurement is giving you the overall consumption as Jase was saying, but you can do a differential measurement, right?
I mean... If I measure the power consumption while the processor is idle and the power consumption while the processor is executing some application and then compute the difference... that would give me the power consumed by the application, right? Am I doing anything wrong?
Anyways... I was trying to find a method (some application) to double check our measurements, but I guess there isn't such an app for BlackBerry...
