In the nearish term, it looks likely that the battery life will be 
somewhere in the region of 6-8 hours, with the CPU on, and the backlight 

In the moderate term, it's possible that this will rise to somewhere in 
the >24 hour range, if it is possible to use the slow mode of the CPU 
for the majority of the time.
(slow mode to read out precomputed mp3 decoding, fast mode to decode mp3 
to a RAM buffer).

This is based on a very sketchy analysis of the hardware.
