    I've noticed a little more battery drain than usual this morning when connecting to wireless here at work. With 2.1, I usually had the same level battery when trying 3G all day or wireless all day. So I had justification to use the faster option.

    What have other people noticed about our now new Wireless N capable phone? Maybe I'm overreacting already.

    Is the wireless where you work Wireless N capable? And are you connected at wireless N speeds?

    I got my OTA Update Thursday and while on wireless at my office the battery life was about the same. But then got to my gf's parents yesterday morning and connected to their wireless. Suddenly while on their wifi the battery life is much worse, draining much faster. What gives?
