Anand Lal Shimpi:
Now for the killer. If you have an iPad on Verizon’s LTE network and
use it as a personal hotspot (not currently possible on the AT&T
version), it will last you roughly 25.3 hours on a single charge.
Obviously that’s with the display turned off, but with a 42.5Wh
battery driving Qualcomm’s MDM9600 you get tons of life out of the new
iPad as a personal hotspot.
[Nice. We’re I to get one, this would be a primary benefit.]
