Apple It's one of those days again: Apple held a product announcement today, announcing several new products. The most important of which was rumoured about for a long time now: a smaller iPad. It's called the iPad mini, and has the potential to become the best-selling iPad - and thus, the best selling tablet.

Wow, that's quite bad. I can go by on active use on my Nexus 7 for 3-4 days, at which point I'll hit the 15-20%. Never tried pure standby.

I can go by 3 days max. But any real use, it lasts maybe 2 days.

Today it (for the second time in less than a week) it threw up the "You must charge now" dialog, then almost immediately turned off. The next 30 minutes was a battle with convincing it to charge. After performing the "magic" 30 second power button press, it was okay and charged. But as to how long that will last is hard to say. Google tells me I'm not alone here.
