Windows Mobile Team Blog : Power to the Smartphone
I've been trying out a new Cingular 8525 (made by HTC) because I'm still chasing that elusive dream of having the all-in-one phone with as fast a wireless network has possible. I also just have to have a GSM phone, dictated by my travel, so anything from Verizon just won't do.
There's a lot to like about the 8525, but the one problem I have with this device is the same problem I have had with every Windows Mobile (and its predecessor OS Pocket PC) device since they have been available: the battery life sucks.
I haven't fully conditioned my battery yet, but right now it's lasting about 6 hours.
Microsoft has some interesting tips on how to squeeze more juice out of their batteries, but should you have to do this as a user?
