It seems it does use the alarm interface which mean you have a daemon
running continuously. I would be affraid to kill the battery.
Crontab for a handheld should be hardware.

In our case, at the end, crontab's events should be recorded in 

I tried once to make a crontab using the alarm API, unfortunnately
it used pyalarmd of Gene Cash which had a bug (or alarm itself).
If you can provide me a Python library to control the alarm, I
will update my crontab python script.
