    i dont think there will be hours of difference between the two .maybe 1hr at the most...i betting on edge...because apple said they went with the 2g because 3g was pulling to much battery,but never said anything about wifi eating the hell out of it., but on pocket pc wifi pulls a crap load so dont know . its going to be a trial and error thing your going to need to test it out for your self ..i allways use wifi!!!and my battery life is a crap load longer than ever ppcand BBthat i have ever had..
