Re: [PLUG] Android?

If I had to point out one major flaw in my G1, it wouldn't be the soul-trade issue, it wouldn't be the fact that it's underpowered, it would be the short battery life. I don't sync any email, and rarely browse the web for very brief periods of time. I don't even talk more that a few minutes a day, and I can barely get it to last a day. If I'm caught without a cable to charge overnight, I'll wake up (or not, given the lack of alarm) to a dead phone.

What is the battery life like?  I'm particularly interested to hear
how it does with IMAP (non-gmail) email client running and collecting
mail all day.  My Nokia E61i would last about a day with imap idle
collecting my 300-400 messages/day.  I imagine most smart phones are
similar but I understand Blackberry's technology allows for 3-4 days
battery life which is pretty impressive.

Are the third party builds realistically usable everyday?  That is:
I'm very technical but once it's set up I *really* don't have the time
or energy to tweak and manage it.  Is it set and forget once it's set

Thanks again for all the insight.
