M.A.G.I.C: Ultimate convergence in a PDA?

We keep talking about convergence: Here is a prototype that takes that to heart. The Mobile Advance Global Integrated Communicator or M.A.G.I.C. prototype tries to throw everything in except the kitchen sink. The manufacturer calls it a true convergent device. In terms of specs, it looks like this: An Intel 624MHz processor with an Intel 2700G3 GPU with VGA-out support, quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE, 802.11b Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, integrated GPS, IrDA, USB, a micro SD slot, 512MB RAM, 512MB ROM and an 8GB integrated micro-drive. You also get biometric support, a QWERTY keyboard and dual 2MP cameras. The device also comes with two displays: one is a 3.5-inch VGA inner panel display and the other is an outer panel 2.8-inch VGA.

The prototype runs Windows Mobile 5.0 and there are plans to also offer a version with Windows XP (Tablet version?).

All that comes in a package that measures 125mm x 70mm x 32mm and weighs 300g.

I would definitely be curious to know what kind of battery life you get out of this device.
