The 810 is slightly larger, and thus has a little more space inside. The 810 also has 8 radios, while the 820 must carry 14... yes, it is quite easy these days to cram lots of variable oscillator transistors onto a single main chip, but the radios that must attach to them to make them useful are still large enough to take up a lot more space than the chipset. So, naturally, the 810 has more internal space left over to house a larger battery, as opposed to the 820.

Perhaps they could have made the 820 a little bit more spacious internally in order to house a larger battery, like the 810? I suppose that they could have, but remember that the carrier (AT&T in the case of the 820) gets the last word on what specs they will accept, including device size footprint... they do their best to match the desires of their customers with the specs of new device concepts from the OEM's (in this case, Nokia).
