    The batteries will be the same. There have been mixed reviews about the battery life with 3G from media that got an early look at the phone.

    But doesn't the battery on the 16GB device have to manage more memory space and perform double allocation duties (swapping in and out of RAM, shifting sectors, etc.)

    the battery itself is suppose to be better on the 3G, however the 3G will run through battery life faster than the V1, so in the end they balance out to be the same

    I hope it's better than Walt Mossberg said, because if it isn't there'll be some screaming going on tomorrow afternoon.
