The battery discussion has been quite interesting to follow. I would agree that with all of the features that this phone has(wifi, 3g, bluetooth, location services, apps, potential in the future for apps to run in the background), that battery life is simply not good enough. This may of course be difficult to correct in the short term, until lower power consuming chips are developed and maybe even better battery technology is developed. But from reading around the web, I don't get that sense that this is around the corner. I think it would be a really cool idea to be able to manage things such as turning on/off 3g, wifi, bluetooth and location services, and screen brightness in an easier fashion besides having to navigate through the settings icon. i find myself doing this all the time to conserve battery life, and it really does become a pain. perhaps one icon, that when pushed and held, would have a customizable drop down list that could quickly allow you to do all of these things? just a thought. i have emailed these suggestions to Apple, but hopefully they are already considering such a thing on their own. Anyone else find they are dealing with the same issues?
