for what it is worth. battery charge duration is appearing as an issue 
with the Motorola Droid as well. I have started using a Droid and I 
notice that I need to charge it every night, and, if I fail to do that, 
then the next day it runs low on battery charge.  Here is the url to 
some advice posted on the Verizon Wireless www site concerning battery 
duration related issues:


Of course the Verizon Wireless Droid uses EVDO for Internet access which 
may be more or less power efficient than HSDPA as implemented on the 
N900, I am not sure. One think I like about the Droid is that there is a 
way for the user to be informed of WHAT is consuming the power on the 
device in each of 9 categories  including


Voice Calls

Phone Idle


Cell Standby


Android System


Android OS
