A lot more power, not a little. Flash is even worse - that's why
Apple refused to support it. Figure you might get an hour of
battery life if you decode H.264 in hardware, if your CPU can even
keep up. Because that's how long the battery lasts with no power
management on the Neo right now. The Neo's CPU is roughly
equivalent to the Nokia 770, which can't play H.264 video in real time.
