Any info if the limited battery life on the 9900 is a defective lot of devices or is this a general problem.
Thoughts on RIM's response to solving the issue?
Less than 24h on standby is considerably less than the announced 12.8 days anounced, which may qualify RIM for deceptive advertising

From Orange UK last Friday
I'm shocked how poor this battery is going from bold 9700 to this and reading on google search everyone's saying the same 6 hours is the normal 8 if ya lucky

This has to be a defective batch of batteries, mine if form Vodafone and I have having the same issue.
In fact I have posted earlier about having to charge the device with it sticking out fo the holder, which means the screen is on and notifications are active when charging.
My last Bold was able to be charged whilst in it's holder, without draining the battery or causing any problems.
They quoted battery life is nowhere near the actual life. Something is either going wrong with the OS or they have plain out lied.
Anyone else noticed that when you slide it into the holder, the touchscreen detects the holder as a touch and moves all the screen upwards, so if you leave it on emails and holster it, whan you take it out it is on something compeltely different, usually options or full screen menu, very annoying!
