That's kinda wierd, because the iPhone is *much* smaller and only a
couple of times slower at most -- about the speed of a 400 MHz PowerPC
G4 by my tests, while the 701 is about the speed of a 1.25 GHz PowerPC
G4 (though the speed difference in web browsing is much less
noticeable than that) -- and yet the iPhone can play movies for "up to
7 hours", or browse the web via wifi for "up to 6 hours".  One of the
main things I use mine for is as an e-book reader.  I haven't timed
how long it can do that, but it's in the region of at least 10 - 12
hours.  And I find the screen far more readable than the 701 I played
