BlackBerry PlayBook Competes with Apple iPad for Battery Life

clock January 27, 2011 00:19 by author Jeremy

It's common knowledge that Apple's iPad comes with a hefty battery life: it's almost magical how it manages to stay alive without being plugged into a wall for so long. And yet RIM (Research In Motion) promises that their BlackBerry PlayBook will be able to compete with the iPad in this particular feat of strength.

"It's going to be equal or greater than the iPad with smaller battery size," says Jeff McDowell, RIM's Senior Vice President of Business Marketing and Alliances.

That's a hefty call to make, but I suppose we'll just have to wait and see if it's true. We saw the PlayBook at CES and were sad to hear it didn't have a release date - and it still doesn't.

Even if it fails to beat the iPad's battery life, they can at least make the claim that they've outlasted my patience. Waiting is hard. :(

 Binary Christmas Tree - 2010 Christmas Present Ideas

62 percent of us will be buying electronic gifts for friends and family this Christmas. Electronic gifts and gadgets are becoming more popular each year and nothing is better than trying out those gadgets right away once you open your gifts. Many electronic gadgets require batteries, chargers and other accessories to get them running, so we put together a list to include the extras with your electronic Christmas gifts.

iPad, iTouch, Kindle and e-Book Readers
The iPad and iTouch use a specific Apple charging plug and it doesn’t hurt to carry extras on you for home, office and travel use.  The Kindle is easy on power and uses a micro-USB charger cable. Other e-book readers either use a mini-USB or micro-USB charger cable. Other ideas for these products are iPad cases, Kindle stand for reading, Bluetooth keyboard for the iPad, and gift cards for downloading music, e-books and applications.

Digital Cameras and Camcorders
Digital cameras usually have two or four AA batteries or a Li-Ion battery that is model specific. Rechargeable AA NiMH and Li-Ion batteries make great gifts for digital cameras and help keep our planet green by not using disposable AA batteries. Model specific Li-Ion batteries are custom for each digital camera and additional OEM and aftermarket digital camera batteries can be purchased, as well as an external charger if you have multiple digital camera batteries. You can also by a universal camera charger to charge many differenty types of rechargable batteries. Camcorders also have model specific batteries and have external chargers. Extended capacity camcorder batteries are great for a longer camcorder run time and universal camcorder chargers can charge a variety of batteries for different manufacturers.

TVs and Computer Monitors
New TVs and computer monitors have many input and outputs, including HDMI, VGA, RCA, mini-plug, coax, and even an ethernet plug for internet ready TVs. HDMI cables, RCA cables, power strips and other accessories are great ideas for Christmas gifts. They will always come in handy when hooking up a new Blu-ray DVD player, gaming console, DVR, sound system and many other electronics.

Desktop and Laptop Computers
New desktop and laptop computers have many accessories and peripherals that can be attached, which leave a wide range of Christmas gifts open. A nice wireless mouse or keyboard, mouse pad, external speakers, USB jump drive and hard drives, AC laptop power adapter for the car, laptop case, surge protector, UPS battery backup and LCD screen wipes. If you can’t decide what to get for family and friends, a simple gift certificate from your nearest computer store leaves these options open.

Small Electronic Devices
Many small toys and electronic devices are battery operated and do not include batteries. The most common battery options are disposable AAA and AA batteries and rechargeable AAA and AA batteries. If you’re going to be buying a device that needs batteries, it’s a good idea to throw in a set of new batteries with the gift.

Batteries and Chargers
Batteries and chargers make great gifts and come in a variety of options ranging from AA, AAA, USB chargers and car power inverters. Recharge those NiMH and Li-Ion AA and AAA batteries with new 15 minute battery chargers and keep USB electronic devices charged in the car with AC power inverters. Different USB chargers and adapters also make great gifts ranging from iPod, Mini-USB and Micro-USB charger cables.

With all of these great Christmas gift ideas, you can’t go wrong with buying electronic devices for your friends and family. Electronics gifts are growing each year as the presents of choice, so don’t forget to include a set of batteries. If you can’t decide what kind of electronic gift to get, you can always purchase a gift card at your nearest consumer electronics store.
