    Web surfing in EVDO area was fast. WiFi was faster.

    Dunno bout myspace but Facebook was OK.

    I charged the Hero 100% full when I left the house at 10:00AM. Made about 30 mins of call throughout the day. Surfed the web about 30 minutes EVDO total. Scanned about 20 bar codes addtionally(EVDO). I WiFi'd about 30 minutes. I had GPS location services on all day and BT on about 4 hours - forgot to turn ot off. I had push email on all day. Had dinner at Spaggetti Factory @ 9:00PM. Finished dinner @ 11:00PM waiting to P/U my daughter from Homecomming dance. I got a RED Low Battery message @ about 11:45PM So it lasted a full day. But is that typical for the services I used?? Dunno. I'm ok with it. But the Hero is definately a once a day charger device.

    So far i get a full day of use out of my Hero, although being new I play with it a ton. So I would guess for me once i get back to normal usage it will be a solid day on a single charge.

    It certainly can't be any worse than the battery life of the Pre! I unplug at 8:00 in the morning - light use during the day - mainly texting - I'm down to 10% almost every day by 8:00 p.m.
