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.
