Palm Pre to share battery with Centro, Treo 800w?

Plam Pre battery life spec

While at the debut of the Palm Pre smartphone at CES, one of the things the company kept under the radar was the battery specs. On Thursday, the company revealed the device's battery looks identical to the one used in the current Palm Centro and Palm Treo 800w, potentially giving it the same 1,150mAh rating. There is also the possibility the new smartphone will have a 1,350mAh power pack, just like the extended battery used in the Centro and 800w. Another report has the battery listed at 1,200mAh, so the final rating is still up in the air.

Despite these specs, it's still unknown how long the new phone will last with either of these batteries, especially since the new webOS is an unknown. Palm's Treo 800w with the 1,150mAh battery uses Windows Mobile and has battery life that's longer than any similarly equipped phone, so it's expected the Pre's operation won't disappoint.
