In regards to Apple's use of backlighting, it goes off after about 10 seconds of no use but can be adjusted to other lengths of time.

OK everything except for games. For that a person would have to be running Parallels, or some such alternative, on their Mac.
On that note, I would like to add that as a Mac user I can run Linux, Unix, SuSE, WINE... I could even run various flavors of the Windows OSes itself... if I wanted to; giving me far more choices than what you have available.

Twelve hours is not very difficult when you are travelling. I've already listened to entire audio books in one trip because of layovers and delays. (Nothing like leaving DC at 6 AM and arriving in Hawaii at 4 AM local time. Glad my MP3 player runs on AAAs.)

^^^how quickly other people forget....i think i posted the same earlier on....the retort? one can buy an extended battery or even carry multiple batteries on their person for those instances where they need them. if i was on extended biz travel then i suppose a removable battery could come into play but definately not on a day to day basis.
Dunc, your a voice of reason.

But the iPhone will last twice as long as the Blackjack.
Anyway, if I am going to be traveling for an extended period of time, I would rather have one recharging battery pack that can charge ANY USB (or Firewire for that matter) device that I may have — 5, 6, maybe 7 different chargings. This to me is more handy and usefull than having a removable battery.

Also the Blackjack would get less battery life simply b/c it is actually a modern device with 3G/HSDPA, which is known battery drain, same with EvDo.
If you disable HSPDA (done through a simple tweak) and make it equal with the iPhone then you'll have an actual fair comparison.
Maybe b/c they are claiming to "reinvent the phone"? Is it too much to expect better battery life?

But it's a nice option for those who need it something the iPhone could not even offer if Apple wanted. Samsung will also be rolling out WM6 for the BJ for free -- a nice consideration on their part.
Fact is, going by what the iPhone is rated at for talk time, it is far from revolutionary and if anything is on par with what is out there today for non-3g devices. Real world tests will shed great light on this topic.
