Spare battery pack only $39

Wow A spare battery for only $39. I like that a replacement isn't 1/2 the cost of the device

Here at sony site The eleventh item down

Son of a .... Now I'm back to considering the 900 over the 300 again.

Depends on what you really want. Are periodicals, a large screen, 3G and touch important to you?

How much does the clearer screen of the 300 trump that?

EDIT: And it is always good to know that batteries are available for the 900. I'd wager a battery in the 300 would still last a ridiculous amount of time before it needs replacing. 2+ weeks a charge, times say, 200 charges (being conservative most batteries are closer to 300-400 charges) is about 400 weeks, or 7.6 years.

By the time the battery dies on my 300 there will be a few third party battery packs available, just like for my Palm Pilot.
There will also be some hack available allowing you to replace the actual battery.

Good point about the screen which I need to ask..
