I'm having problems understanding English

My English is getting worse lately! did I read:
"During the past week we have identified that the battery life of the production eo v7110, is not meeting the originally published run times of 2.5 hours"?


The last 4/14/2006, Robs Bushway was telling TabletKiosk about this issue.
I’m getting 1 hour 40 minutes on the battery. I’m not sure if this a prototype issue or standard behavior. I was very disappointed with the battery performance.


that Same day Martin Smekal, TabletKiosk CEO, replayed to Rob saying:

#4 The pre-production unit you have does not have it’s power management features implemented, and there are on-going bios modifications that will effect the battery performance in the production unit. However, this being said take into consideration this is a full X86 architecture system running full Windows XP operating system, while utilizing a three (3) cell battery. A standard Tablet PC or Laptop will have at least a six (6) cell battery to achieve 3.5 hours of battery life.

We are confident that with the Bios modifications and the VIA processor being stingy in power consumption, we will meet our claimed active computing time.


Come on Guys, admit that you knew this before you started to ship these units. One more time you are not telling customers the true! At this point I"m thinking that the real reason for the initial shipment delay was this Battery life issue and not any problem with the back cover.

This email that you have sent is far from being an apology.
