With the emphasis on media consumption for this device, it seems that the upper limit in this description might be very iffy. And even at eight hours, it would greatly reduce the accuracy of this as a "mobile" device, at least for me.
They expect you to play video with wireless OFF? How? By downloading the whole movie first? Duh.

They also say the k3 gets 2 months battery. I never get it to last 1 month, let alone 2. Two weeks is stretching it.
