I was doing a bit of light reading in relation to overclocking these units, a lot of complaints about increased battery usage. I was wondering is it likewise possible to underclock to improve battery? I only really use mine for the calander and phone functions, and would love longer battery life.

There are experiments done on some other phone ( Wizard, I think. Definately not an Atom) on underclocking. On the clock low enough to be functional, the improvements in battery life is too little to be significant
