    I can't help but think about the problem I have with my iPhone when I am using 3G all day on my phone, it absolutely KILLS my battery life.. so much that I think I only get 33% of the battery life I would get with only using wifi (just my observations from my 3G phone)...

    SO, given that, the Ipad will run for 8-10 hours on a charge without 3G, what are your predictions on how much life you're going to get with the Ipad when using 3G all day long? I hope I'm wrong, but I'm betting 3hrs at the most with strong 3G usage.. which IMO would suck.

    Any thoughts or predictions? I guess we'll be finding out soon.. but I'd like to hear what everyone is thinking on this one...

    According to the info posted on Apple's site for a while ... 9 hours of Web browsing using 3g. 10 hours using wifi.

    9 hrs on 3G and 10hrs on wifi? I'm calling B.S. on the 9hrs/3G.. but we'll see.

    Sorry for another "3g battery life" thread, I've been lurking on the iPad forums but haven't seen anyone address this.. but obviously they have.. :eek:
