NGP Battery Matches the 3DS's Battery

Holy handheld wars, Batman! How is it possible that we're at this stage again? The world seemed to be in order, the DS was above the PSP, dogs chased cats, and rain fell down instead of up. Now I don't know what to believe.
If it comes down to choosing between Nintendo's or Sony's handheld what will you base your decision on?
If you spun the wheel of destiny and landed on battery life, you'd better be prepared to spin again. Despite both systems attempting to invoke a sense of "always with you, always on", neither the NGP nor 3DS has exceptional battery life.
Reports show that the NGP is expected to meet the 3DS at 4 to 5 hours of concentrated use. That means you'll be able to sit and play games for a limited amount of time, but you can expect to plug in your NGP every night when you get home. Of course, some of the more passive uses of the NGP will require less juice; just don't expect to use a ton of 3G features without charging the NGP alongside your phone every night.
