There are several features in this device which save power.
Obviously the x-scale processor offers a huge advantage in that department.
Secondly, the device senses the level of ambient light--if you typically use the Blackberry in well lit conditions, you'll be saving power on backlighting...
And you're likely in a very good coverage area. Which obviously reduces the amount of power the transmitter requires.

I had a sdk and it would barely last 1.5 days without me touching it.
It heard that the constant conection to the GPRS/EDGE was to blame for the consistent battery drainage.
So my question is, how is the bb able to perform wut it does with such remarkable grace??
