    Can anyone really tell me if the battery is weak in the TP. I bought one from Staples for $300. But all the other stores made it a point to say, the battery don't last as long Ipad or the others.
    I guess my next question is can the battery be up sized, or is their an app for that? I have a legacy pre.I'm looking forward to my tp. because my wife taunts her Ipad in my face all the time. I sure wish Sprint or HP would make up, so I can get my pre 3. I'm WEBOS ecosystem all the way!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Let's just say that you'll be saving power on your phone because you can leave it charging while the TouchPad keeps on rocking. =P

    My TP lasts about 8-9 hours when browsing the web and using data intensive apps. Idk about video and such yet. I'm satisfied with the battery life.

    If I helped you or you have downloaded one of my files,
    then least you could do is click the "Thanks" button.

    Staples tried to get me to buy their extended warranty, saying that it would replace the battery for me, and that the TP will need it. I doubt that.

    I chalk it up to them trying to squeeze some extra bucks out of me, since I got such a great deal!

    We played some games on the TP last night, I did some web browsing before and after, streamed the new episode of Jersey Shore, played some more games and more browsing, left it on my night stand... woke up around 40%. Battery life has been great so far.

    Also I take it to work some days, can do some light browsing and turning on and off of the wifi (so pulling e-mail and FB status etc) and can get home with 98%ish battery (about 10 hours or more off TS).
    I love physical keyboards... but there is two devices that would make me consider a slab, one is something running a full version of Open webOS. The other is an iPhone!!!! HA HA just kidding (about the iPhone that is)...

    There's really not much in it. If the TouchPad has a shorter running time it's because it does things better. It's worth it!

    I use mine on and off ALL day, I only charge it at night because I have the touchstone and it's easy, but it lasts way into the next day. I'm impressed!
