Since then, we've been working to unify the platforms. In WM5, we did a bunch of plumbing work to this end, and brought Softkeys and Persistent Storage to Pocket PC. At this point, the two biggest differences in the platforms are the Pocket PC touch screen and the wildly different power models the two platforms use. In this blog entry, I'm going to talk about those power models and what they mean to users."</i><br /><br />Mike Calligaro has done an excellent job describing the different power stats of both the Smartphone and Pocket PC. Although a large part of the article deals with the Pocket PC, there is still a lot of good information about how your Smartphone handles its power consumption and what you can do to minimize the battery drain. Well worth the read, in my opinion. :)
