Unfortunately, the Palm Pre doesn’t happen to be the exception to the smartphone/weak battery-life rule.While the features and capabilities of the Pre are nothing to sneeze at, it’s battery life leaves a lot to be desired. As with essentially every other smartphone, the battery deficiencies of the Pre have turned into a host of battery-saving applications and poducts; the latest of which is Battery Saver application recently featured on PreCentral.
Battery Saver automatically turns on Airplane mode each night at your scheduled time. This will not only extend your battery life but give you a quiet night’s rest free from phone calls, messaging and email alerts. As noted by jkontherun, the card doesn’t have to be open for Battery Saver to work. Once it’s run once it keeps running in the background until the Pre is rebooted.
Being that the application can be download for free, Palm Pre owners everywhere eally have nothn to lose by trying the latest Pre battery-saving application out.
