    Battery life on a smartphone is never all that great. But I've heard good things in other reviews about the Evo's battery. Plus, there's always extended batteries.

    I am gonna rate this the old thumbs down, as this is very old news. Since the dawn of smart-phones.

    This is a shot in the dark, but does anyone know how this would compare to the battery life of a stock BB Curve 8330?

    Standby on the 8330 is "up to 11 days", with 4 hours of talktime

    After finding settings that work for me, the blackberry is getting retired for the evo when my free month of service runs out.

    Caveat - I don't use 4 hours of talktime in a day! I prefer email and taking google voice transcriptions to then reply to.

    I have no problem with the OP...just pointing out how one review (in this case, WSJ) get repeated and repeated and linked and re-posted and suddenly becomes fact.

    I'm sure the time is not as good as I'd like but I bet it ain't as bad as some worry about. Still better to be able to change the battery, though. Lots of my firends' iPhones run out as well (although admittedly due in part to the gimping of that phone, it's battery lasts a while).
