iPhone Battery Woes? I Don't Think So
This is mostly (about 60%) Wifi network access, with some eBook reading and music played through the built in speaker. At times combinations of all three. I should add that this is with 3G enabled (as you can see my signal is pretty good); push email enabled (using Exchange Activesync to mail2web.com) and location services enabled. Brightness is set to auto. I'm sure you'll also note that there is about a third of the battery remaining according to the gauge top right of the picture.
I don't own a single other handheld that could achieve that sort of runtime from a single charge, 3G or otherwise. Even the monster batteries in the iPaq 214 and HTC Advantage struggle to manage more than three and a half hours of actual usage.
Strike one iPhone 3G myth...
