 The battery life is too short for the phone to be usable as a phone.

 1) The FR should go into a deep sleep mode after some user-settable
 timeout, and be woken only upon GSM incoming call or the user pushing the
 screen lock and/or power button.

 2) It should not be awoken by jostling against the touchscreen when in
 sleep mode.

 3) The screen lock button (on ASU) should also dim the screen and NOT
 allow any touchscreen activity to wake it up. Hitting the lock button
 should undim the screen again, and, if the phone had timed out into sleep
 mode, bring it out of sleep mode.

 And anything else that might help prolong battery life would be great.
