I don't feel the need to post every single time I have some random opinion off the top of my head.
But, lets not turn this into a flame thread, I view this area for the same reason everyone else does, to get the facts.
I will definitely continue to ask every little detail that I can so I can stay informed as well as passing any information along over here, but if you guys don't want a heads up on what I'm being informed than I'll just keep it to myself.
EDIT: answer to the battery question
CDMA/EvDO devices and 3G devices take more power to run. It's a requirement of the radio's. I'm not sure of the technical reasons for this, but it is a known issue with these devices. |
We are trying a different Li-on battery on these to hopefully provide some longer life.
I googled a hardware analysis for 3g to read up on battery life and here are interesting reads for you guys. Apparently a lot of other companys are trying to figure out how to extend battery life on 3g phones as well. AnandTech: No 3G on the iPhone, but why? A Battery Life Analysis
Today @ PC World 3G iPhone Coming in '08, AT&T CEO Says
Since the iPhone's launch this summer, one of the primary complaints has been slow data speeds, as result of the decision to limit the iPhone to EDGE speeds. Jobs said that the decision to not include 3G support in the iPhone initially surrounded how it would impact the iPhone's battery life. He called the chips used for 3G technology "real power hogs" and that battery life of 3G devices hover in the sub-five hour range.
