How much better is the battery life of the GTA02?
I would like to know as I am considering buying a GTA02 as the GTA03
devel. has been halted.
I am getting roughly 8-10 hours of suspend on my GTA01, and power
on->off drains the battery in less than 2 days.
This is with a 2.6.24 kernel (mickeyl at shell) from Jul 29 2008 and no
firmware upgrades on the GSM modem.
Perhaps I should upgrade the kernel?
