for my own experience, the battery life on the N800 sucks big time.

i get no where near the time it claims to -- and i sometimes get stuck 
in this reboot problem when the battery goes completely.   I have a new 
problem in that it doesn't always charge.

i have had Nokia's all my life and this is the first device from them 
that doesn't feel solid in terms of power.  It feels shaky and i 
wouldn't leave home without my power lead.  i have tried changing 
battery and it makes 0 difference.
