Excellent list.  Note that this varies build-to-build, or at least has
in the last few days.

Same here - but after that (being in the US) I just dropped $10 cash
at a T-mobile kiosk in a mall and walked away with a SIM card with a
few minutes on it, so I can keep the "real" phone working.

> 3: How long does the device run on a battery?

On an 850mAh nokia battery... maybe 3 hours mostly idle (not sure, I
came back to find it dead.)  Haven't timed it with the 1200mAh "real"
battery, but basically, "power management isn't really there yet."

I've certainly replaced uImage and rootfs (you want to keep them in
sync, the *modules* are all on the rootfs) a half dozen times using
just the usb cable; the current uboot seems to be stable enough for
the long term.
