I'm pretty sure it will. If I do zero calls and messages, but often look at the
clock the FR will last 3 workdays (being empty at the third evening).
With I use it for some hours a day (wlanm gps, ...) it gets half empty
in one day.
I think the highest power consumption comes from the screen.
APM says it will last 5h with screen at full brightness, and around 12 h
with screen disabled. Don't forget that's both without suspending!
With wlan enabled this will be somewhat shorter, but it shouldn't be a problem
to get more than 2h browsing and 2h music out of it.
