Smaller the battery the faster it degrades when pushed they die a lot faster than a bigger battery as well in overall lifespan, I think it's very cheap of Sony to put such a battery in a device of this size although maybe it's common with ereaders, it's definitely not a suitable battery for media though.
Ipod contains a 1,440 li poly battery by the way it's very cheap of Apple as well, my 3rd gen touch is dead now because of it even though it doesn't sound it that's probably at least double the lifespan of 1,000 mah.
While it's true mp3 playing needs very little power it will still kill the reader a whole lot faster in my opinion.
So all your opinion regarding the T1 battery life, no facts as I requested. And completely ignoring the example I gave of battery life experienced by smartphones, of far greater power demand than the T1 but batteries of similar capacity. Apple, you claim, is "cheap" too apparently. You seem to have now walked away your claim that T1 batteries would fail in a year if used for audio (now saying "whole lot faster").
And where you claim facts for the iPods you are in error so I have hunted out the evidence for you. Your 3rd Gen Touch was actually approx. 790mAh (refer to http://www.ifixit.com/Teardown/iPod-...eration/1158/2
for a photo of the battery out of a disassembled Touch). Despite your claim otherwise, the 5th Gen Touch capacity is as I said 1030mAh (refer to the photo in set 16 in the teardown at http://www.ifixit.com/Teardown/iPod+...ardown/10803/2
where you will also see that Gen Touch uses a Li-Ion battery, not Li-Poly as you claim (same chemistry though, of course). Even the 160GB Classic is less than 1000mAh and it has the power demands of a drive to spin. But, of course, you regard these as all being cheap products.
I also see in your other recent posts that you are unhappy with your T1 over a number of matters so it would seem your opinion, and that is all you have expressed, on battery life will be coloured by that. So I suspect we can safely discard them, which I have done and will leave you with your apparently unhappy experience with your T1 and say no more.
