Actually, the processor is more powerful and has a better technology. That's why it will have MORE battery life.

The faster the processor goes to top speed, does what it needs to do, and go back to low, the less battery it uses. Also, the processor itself is more power saving, allowing more battery save usage.

I think you're misinformed. It will have the same "size" battery, as in the overall capacity. I don't believe anyone has said it's the exact same battery. So the battery alone, at the same capacity, could have better performance(there's more to a battery than just the capacity). Additionally, as was already mentioned, the newer processor is even more efficient. Other random components in the device are probably newer parts(even if they have the same numeric rating specs) and are also probably even more energy efficient. The screen is the same resolution, but not the same screen. So it's probably even more energy efficient.

All of that said, I would expect similar if not increased battery life, on a tablet that most would agree is fairly good on battery life already(it's not "great" by any means, very few tablets reach that level today, but it's good enough for most to last a week or so with moderate use).

I don't think I'd buy a regular Tablet Z right now with the Z2 Tablet coming out within the next month or two, unless it was under $350USD(assuming the new 16Gb wifi model will sell for $500USD as the previous one did....here in the states).

Considering the price difference to the actual changes of the z2 Imo it didnt warrant spending almost double for the z2. I just bought the z1 for less than the $350 price tag and like you mentioned although id rather have the newer of the two it just didnt make sense paying an exra $200. This is an awesome tab nonetheless, quite overlooked and also unfairly reviewed Imo. My only gripe may be battery life

After using it for 2 weeks now, I love this tablet. Weightless, superb display;

I got a super deal for 349 Euros in Amazon.de

Had a Xoom in the past and compared to that this is way better
