Why to (still) not worry about the PlayBook’s battery life

Given some of the crazy rumors regarding the battery life of the unreleased BlackBerry PlayBook it appears to be needed to remind everyone why it will not be an issue. My post last night on BerryReview.com is a direct response to these claims, and a follow up to my original call not to worry from way back in October.

Put simply, as a micro-kernel based OS, QNX is ideally suited for a mobile environment. Add that to the devices lack of GSM/EVDO/CDMA radios, its low heat design, and RIM’s excellent history of battery longevity, there is no reason at all to be concerned.
