This used to be the case, but it didn't turn out too well. There are issues
which are concerned with memory volatility. Palm even suffered a class
action due to capacitor issues with earlier models such as the M100.

This question has no answer. Much like laptops, this depends on conditions
such as temperature and charging habits, the duration of use (rather than #
of days/months/years), the intensity/load throughout use (e.g. brightly lit
screen, CPU load) and so forth.

Hope it helps,
