Can someone advise of the anticipated battery life for a full battery charge for the Blackberry Playbook?
Is the length of the battery charge the same for the 32 GB and the 64 GB models ?
Do Blackberry Playbook users feel that the 32 GB model is adequate for most purposes (as opposed to the 64GB model) ?

My son has a 16 gig model and always wishes for more movies on it like I can with my 64 gig
if you really want tons of storage, look at a goflex satellite drive with built in wifi
Battery life is good, I hardly run it down in a day. I use a dock charger every night so I start the day with a charged battery.

Yes I should have paid the extra 50 GBP and got the 32. There's only about 12GB available of the 16, and once you get less than 5 GB free storage I find it develops problems. I managed to brick it once when I accidentally transferred a large DVD ISO file across whilst copying over some videos and filled it up. Had to call RIM and go through the full debrick as it wouldn't even turn off with all the usual tricks.
You will find you get a lot less battery life if you use it outdoors. That may sound strange but the auto brightness winds up to max in the sunlight, coversely in your evening in front of the boring TV programs you will get more battery life. Try covering up the LED, or shining a strong flashlight on the LED to see the effect.
Don't get me wrong, Playbook is great!
