    I'm a little confused about Treo battery life.

    1-I read somewhere (probably here in the discussions) that the color Treo will boast the same battery life as the 180. Is this true? If it is, I feel a little silly having ordered a 180.

    2-I've read that the lithium battery is internal and non-removable, but the photos in the flash demo on the HS site have what looks like a battery compartment on the back. Does anyone know if we're going to get to carry a second battery, or is that little hatch in the photo something else?

    The "hatch" on the back is for the SIM card, which is removable on any GSM phone. This allows you to transfer all of your contact information from phone to phone, without having to retype it all.

    A really handy advantage for GSM, if you ask me.

    The battery is not removable, and probably not replaceable. But it is LiIon Polymer, so it should last pretty long (overall life, I mean, not per charge).

    I think a travel charger/ car lighter adapter is going to be a must for anyone who talks on the phone a lot.

    That's too bad. I was hoping they had changed the battery system since the prototypes had come out.

    I could be mistaken, but I recall reading (somewhere) that the battery is supposed to last 1.5 to 2 years. Then you need to ship it to Handspring to be replaced - you can't replace it yourself.
