Can we get get representative data for a few interesting test cases?
I'm thinking of something like having several people read a large document in
e-book mode. If you record the timings on the keystrokes you can get an
average time-per-page. Even a stopwatch might be good enough.
Then just set up a system to loop through a large document at that rate until
the battery runs down.
You could also make a few more runs with slightly slower or faster timings.

A few more runs:
Wait forever (no keystrokes), just display the same page. (best case)
No wait, just display pages as fast as possible. (worst case)
Then there is with/without the backlight....
If the numbers turn out to be crap, then we will have a nice neat pile of
crap numbers that we can use to convince other people that they are crap.
e-book reader is convenient because it is simple and easy for everybody to
understand. What other activities have some sort of average
keystroke/whatever timing that would be reasonable to measure?
These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's. I hate spam.
