Jon Stokes on the Palm Pre’s Battery Life

Jon Stokes, after using the Pre as his only computing device for two days in an airport:

There is one diversion on the Pre that’s really great, but you’ll definitely want to be plugged in while you use it: Sprint TV. The live TV streaming to the device works quite well, and I got a huge kick out of watching ABC News and some reality TV shows on my phone. But I estimate (I haven’t formally tested) that I could stream about 30 minutes of TV to the Pre before completely nuking the battery.

Streaming video involves both playback and constant network use, but 30 minutes sounds shockingly low.
