    Billr - thanks for making that clear.
    The "memory effect" of LiO batteries has been inaccurately discussed on many threads. For more information, readers may want to try a quick visit to "battery university dot com" (part two). Yes, there actually is such a website and the info is presented in laymen's terms. Good info on how to make your battery last longer and discussion of the built-in circuit Billr mentions.

    App memory from 40.5 after 3 60 sec. battery pulls to 15.5 now (.122 much better) may retest without Viigo
    Browser faster
    Camera much faster on taking a picture, but still slow on cycling to save or delete.
    MMS and attachments all good
    Phone all good 1 dropped call so far, from black screen laying flat to picking it up, just went to home screen. (Ha kinda reminded me of .75)
    accelerometer not so great, lots of clock time the first few hours that seems to be all but gone
    Typing great, just loving the speed
    Cut and paste also still great
    I think it's a big step in the right direction and i'm not not liking it
    I think i'll give it a week.... oh wait at the rate of os' and hybrids coming out i most likly wont have it a week.... HA!

    I think it's kinda amazing how the same phone for different people run so differently
    Which is not good. The same phone should not act differently. Not to bash RIM but at least the iPhone got that part right. Very disappointing that problem cannot be standardized.
