    I first thought Battery Saving Mode might be useless, with just an added convenience of adjusting the screen brightness for you at a specific time.

    However, I see now that it actually lowers the brightness to make it even dimmer than 10%. This is something that I don't think was possible before. I wonder what else is going on with the device when the mode is enabled though, say underclocking the CPU behind the scenes and such. Anyways, I hope RIM continues to emphasize on PRACTICAL additions like this.

    I'll definitely be enabling this feature on those long days when I want to get all the juice I can out of this thing! Features like this are why I stick with BlackBerry handsets.

    Update: Ok, I did some testing, and what it actually does is ENABLE the "auto dimming" feature in the display settings, which can dim further down than 10%. So technically, this WAS possible before. But I think this will keep the screen down more rather than it fluctuating. I'm not 100% certain though.

    i want a feature that lets me brighten my screen to supernova proportions and overclock the bejabbers outta my processor..i'll strap a car battery to my 9900..maybe make an otterbox-esque case outta a tractor tire with a pocket for a 500gig external hd..wouldn't be terribly practical maybe, but it'd be a great conversation starter..

    LOL. I'm not sure if that was a shot at me but I like the humor.

    I'll admit I do get geeked out on the little things, but I really do appreciate RIM's efforts with things like this.
