CNet has a article that says Apple has announced that the iPhone will have a full 8 hours of talk time and up to 250 hours of standby time. The battery will last six hours on the Internet, seven hours of video and 24 hours of audio playback. Naturally all of these are “up to” times but even with the typical vendor optimism these are pretty good times. The Apple iPhone tech specs have been updated to reflect these times. Apple had previously published specs of 5 hrs of talk time. The full Apple announcement is here and includes info that the screen will be glass instead of plastic. There’s also a comparison chart for other smart phones.
