RIM has been keeping pretty quiet about how long their upcoming tablet’s battery life is, but now some leaked screenshots of the tablet’s “Battery Assistant” app are shedding some light on the issue. If these pictures are the real deal, then we won’t have to worry about the tablet’s battery life. It is amazing.
They show the tablet at 50% battery life and the indicator says that it can last another 8.5 hours of web surfing. If 50% is 8.5 hours, then that means that the tablet will be able to surf the web for 17 hours on a full charge.
The iPad has a 10 hour battery life. We will know soon if this is true or just a pipe dream.
