According to Kaufman Bros analyst, Shaw Wu, the Blackberry PlayBook is experiencing relatively short battery life. Shaw has had sources tell him that the PlayBook currently lasts only a few (3-4 hours) per charge. Now my iPad is 8 months old and has probably been through 50 discharge cycles and still gets 8 hours a charge.
Apple boasts a 10 hour battery life for the iPad, many were skeptical until they got their hands on one for a performance test. The Samsung Galaxy Tab has a 6 hour battery life, so if the PlayBook is really experiencing these short battery lifes...it may stall even before it gets out of the gate.
Shaw Wu writes...
"Keep in mind that QNX (OS for PlayBook) wasn't originally designed for mobile environments but rather for devices like network equipment and automobiles where battery life isn't as much a constraint."Wu has been conservative with his estimate of 700k unit sales in 2011, many other analysts have predicted up to 8 million PlayBooks flying off the shelves next year.
Could it possibly be due to Flash...Nah
