I've never even considered an Atom product before, but the new Intel Atom Z6xx series is a different animal altogether.

It promises both power and power savings. And it doesn't even support Windows (initially), but only Android.

Check out this article: Snapdragon Killer? Intel’s Atom Z6 CPUs to Target Smart Phones, Tablets

"... The new CPUs offer strong improvements in endurance, even when using a battery with the same capacity as a standard BlackBerry battery. According to Intel, Atom Z6xx chips achieve:

* 10 days or more of idle power (50x previous Atom CPUs). Intel defines idle as any time a device is on but not in active use. So a phone that periodically gets push e-mail would still be considered idle.
* 2 days (48 hours) of continuous audio playback.
* 5 hours of continuous video playback...."
