National Semiconductor and ARM have joined technological forces in a ground-breaking collaboration, to develop advanced energy-conservation solutions. Together, they are creating power-efficient systems that will conserve energy and increase the battery life of handheld devices from 25% all the way up to 400%.

Using the combination of National’s PowerWise technology and ARM’s Intelligent Energy Manager technology, makers of personal portable electronics will be able to dramatically increase the features and functionality of their handsets while maintaining the same user profile (e.g., size, weight and battery life). In fact, even the current generation of voice-centric handsets can make good use of this joint solution to reduce battery size and manufacturing costs and decrease the form factor—without eliminating any features.

Well, I wont hold my breath.  All I know is that we've been hearing about all manner of research and potential breakthroughs that will eventually offer more than just incremental improvements in power.  But they dont ever seem to come.  Yes, I understand that batteries last longer today than they did yesterday, and that devices tax them much more (better color screens, etc.).  STILL, it seems like if Moore's law applied to batteries they'd last 100 years by now!
