I also have had problems with my battery. I will fully charge it and then try to use it and it will shut down all of the sudden after a couple minutes of using it saying battery is too low and then it won't turn on until I plug it in. My SO has had no problems at all with the Sony. Wondering if anyone has heard of this and hope this helps others making a decision on which device to get.
See, this is the type of problem you immediately call CS about.......looking on boards for answers to problems like this will not help.
