***Sorry for the double post Mods, but I thought this was worthy of being in the T-Mobile G1 and News forums. If you must delete one of them I will not hold it against you.*** My coworker just called in a threatened to switch to a Blackberry because of the horrid battery they threw in here. And the T-Mobile Rep said that they were getting ready to ship out free "higher" capacity battery upgrades to all G1 users. They said that this was due to a defect HTC found in the battery that was causing it to drain too fast. Me thinks that is another way of saying "shit, they're on to us, we knew we should have put a high-capacity battery in there and now we really have to respond to save this device from total demise." The battery really has been the achilles heel if there is one. So, hopefully noone went out and bought the high-capacity battery. I've been off the forum for awhile so hopefully this is still news. couldn't find it in any other posts.
