Good Luck with whatever you decide
Sounds like you just a a lemon of a N1.. Battery life on mine is excellent.. can go all day with GPS on, Talk/Txt/Surf Web etc etc with no problems. Start mine fully charged at 3:30am..head to work (McCarren Airport here) and when I get home about 5/5:30pm I have about 26-23% battery life left. Now if I turned off alot of background stuff and just use it as a phone/txt I get a good 24+ off one charge.
Also had a friend at work buy a Droid from Verizon.. he keeps saying it goes dead after a few hours.. told him to check now and then on any tasks running in background which he did..told me same thing about battery again. Told him to go to store and get a new battery and tada all is well.
Sometimes its the battery itself.. but if its the phone then yeah that does suck.
I'm with you, my battery life is atrocious. Last week I slept on a friend's couch. I had 20% battery life when I went to sleep around midnight. I needed my alarm to wake me up. I even put my phone into flight mode and had the screen off. I knew my battery wouldn't last, and it didn't. When I woke up, the phone had turned itself off from battery loss.
It sounds like I need to call Google..
Personally, I don't think the Nexus is an enterprise type phone. I think that if you rely on your phone that much there are better options out there, probably more along the lines of a blackberry (as youve already ordered, apparantly). Google admits themselves that android isn't an enterprise type solution, yet. Unfortunately I've found this out the hard way as well. Not so much in regards to battery life, but really just dependability in general. I think a year or so will change a lot of this, but as of this moment I need something I know is going to work without thinking about it.
Honestly, I blame google more than the device itself. My personal opinion is that google has pretty much abandoned the N1 in favor of carrier subsidized devices. I give it a couple months and it will be discontinued altogether. I think the official release of froyo is being delayed because of carrier testing and not google themselves.
Oh and to that genius above who is saying oh the nexus will be discontinued and blah blah blah....every phone gets discontinued once a newer better phone comes out. Fact of the matter is the nexus along with a few other phones still has the best specs and hardware on the market and will continue to do so at least till the end of the year. so go spew this BS elsewhere.

I think the problem that people fail to realize is that certain phones are designed for certain structures. Nokia e71 for example is one of the best business phones Nokia has designed for the corporate world (I still miss that remarkable phone). Black Berry were designed specifically for the structure for corporation and business use. You wouldn't use a notebook that specifically designed for internet use and media to do IT functions you would use a laptop or desktop for now would you?
I use my N1 for it's sole purpose of 1. a phone 2. a multimedia device 3. a mobile social network connection and 3. a toy. Everything else after is irrelevant, eventhough I still receive and send emails with 0 issues.
There were functions far more better on my e71 when it came to emails and networking and communication than the n1.
BTW, I have 0 problems using my n1's battery life. I was on vacation for a whole week. All I would do is dim the brightness, turned off live wallpaper, and turned off active sync. 0 issues and well over %60 of battery life at the end of the day walking around Disney World with no possibility of charging my phone. You don't walk around with your laptop uncharged so why on earth would you do that with a pocket computer.
Since we already have numerous battery threads discussing both issues and solutions, and this thread is devolving into senseless personal digs, locking it up.
