10 hours of in-use battery life is a LOT for a 1.5 pound color LCD tablet. As a general rule, you can't trust a product's PR to give you a good estimate of how long the battery will last in real-world conditions. That's why numerous pundits have been a little leery of the battery life claims Steve Jobs made in his iPad keynote.

Redmond Pie reports that GCN blogger John Breeden questioned that battery life claim in a column. He received the traditional hateful posts from Apple fanboys.

Breeden emailed Jobs to ask for confirmation on the battery life issue. Jobs responded, stating that the iPad gets 10 hours of use on a single charge. While marketers will spin things right to the edge of truth, Steve Jobs is not known to lie about the features of his own products. Not once they've been officially announced, that is.
