Would this type of battery work? If so, then could the battery be integrated into where the hinge is? I realize that this is probably not workable, but, cheap batteries, and the possibility of simplifying the system board layout by not putting the battery in the middle of it, ok, to one side.

i havent had a chance to look at the link 9still on the command line with links here and will be for a couple more days) however if its anything like the mega backpak for the xda2 form li-ion.com (i belive thats the link) then its worth looking into

hopfully we can get a rectangular square battery, i do like nice flat ones instead of a thick brick as it gives me more horizontal board space and makes the board easier to route

an unexpected side effect is that we can take a nokia battery and stack several side by side meaning we get the magical "hot swap" ability, just dont pull all the battries at once, anyone got any idea what the maximum capacity for one of those batteries are, hopfully its 1Ah and we can get 2 side by side, if we can get 3 then 800mAh should be enogh

anyway i should have my new Xen setup running in the next day or two so i can do experiment with the pcb stuff in windows in a virtual machine (got to love the new x86s)
