    reason I ask as most things Ie email and rss updates, im not to bothered on how fast i get them so I would be happy just to use GPRS as most new devices have the top class of the 2.5G stuff.

    Then i can just use 3G for apps and browsing....

    my current phone last TWICE as long with 3G turned off as I dont have an android yet....

    I think WiFi consumes much more battery than 3G ,

    My battery seems to go like nothing when I'm using WiFi but is pretty efficient on 3G :D
