Battery lifetime with WLAN

Has anyone measured the battery lifetime with WLAN active all the time? I'm planning to have push-mail, RSS-feeds and SIP VoIP on all the time while in range of a hotspot (e.g. at home or the office). I heared the first WLAN-enabled phones had battery issues when used this way.

With Sip/Voip constantly connnected over wifi - 24 hours a day, and with moderate usage (a few calls, some internet and gratity(twitter) usage), I am getting two days from fully charged to four bars.

I haven't let the battery drop below four bars yet.

It would have been amazing if the half qwerty was the kind implemented by SE in M600 and the P1i, i.e. press the left side for Q and press the right side for W. No T9 needed in that case and it works almost like a qwerty.
Word suggestion is still a good feature though and definitely increases speed, but may not work at all.

Ram????

I am confused about the memory of this device. For me, the amount of RAM is the most critical information when it comes to smartphones (that is why I have N82). There is really nothing more frustrating than "Sorry out of RAM" messages while being under a time pressure.

On the official site you get the following information (http://www.forum.nokia.com/devices/E55):

Memory Functions
Maximum User Storage 60 MB
NAND Memory 256 MB
Memory Card type Micro SD
Memory Card Features Hot Swap
Maximum Memory Card Size 16 GB
Maximum Heap Size Unlimited
Maximum JAR Size Unlimited

Where is RAM? Or is NAND (the flash type memory) used as such? Could anybody please clarify this for me?

I wonder if Nokia will ever make a non-touch phone better than the E90.
This one has the E90's battery but nothing has the E90's screen, even the bug-crippled N97, and it looks like hardware graphics acceleration is gone for ever. If I had to replace my two year old E90 now I could only do so with another E90, even if I take cost out of it. Or maybe Apple will have cornered the market in another year or two... they deserve to.

@Pintofale
We are on the same boat. I am using the E90 from 11 month and i used to upgrade each 10 months but now i cant find a successor even on non-Nokia and non-Symbian phones. I am afraid i will go the wrong way and buy a Netbook or WM device.

From E55 i miss:
1. Speed & performance.
2. Photos application to organize my huge images collection.
3. Better Calendar. (now using 3rd party).
4. Ngage.

But what i will miss if i leave E90 to dust is more important. I cant exchange the huge screen,keyboard for just (just fior me) Ngage.

you'll probably spend about 1-2 hours to get aquainted with the new two-thumbs half-qwerty style, but if you're a fast keyboard typer, just let your brain do the work. you'll not even notice when you'll start using the keyboard. or, maybe it's just up to your geekness level )

Productcode for TIM E55 :0586709


Europa code:0580935
Includes Enlgish deutsch Turkce Esti Francais Italiano

For me is the problem that the europian version has No dutch.
The TIM version has got dutch so i have to stay on that one.

Is there anyone out here know if there are other firmwarecode's WITH dutch language included.
