PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless When talking about the webOS, one of the main complaints is often that the operating system feels sluggish, especially considering the Pre has the same hardware as the iPhone 3GS. At a webOS Developer Event in London, Ben Galbraith and Dion Almaer (the Mozilla guys who joined Palm) talked about why this is the case, and hinted that it will be fixed sooner rather than later. They also addressed The One Question: will Palm ever open source the webOS?

Palm pre
5 hours talk / 250 hours standby (maximum)


I don't know where they dug that little gem up but I bought a Pre abount a month and a half ago and I've never seen anything remotely close to that in battery life. I would estimate it more at 2-2.5 hours talk time and *MAYBE* 48 hours standby on a lucky day (if all features are turned off). I suppose you could possibly get 50 - 60 hours standby if you keep the phone in "Airplane Mode" but that sort of defeats the purpose of having a cell phone now doesn't it.
