Default Sony NWZ-E436

I can't find much information about this player, except that it supposed to have 45 hour battery life, FM radio, and sell for under $100 for 4 gigs. There is the E438 8 gig model at under $140. It seems crazy for a $40 price difference for 4 extra gigs of flash memory when flash memory is so cheap. Does this player really get 45 hours battery life? Does it navigate by folders as well as tags? Is the sound quality good? Will it play files below 32 kbps, or is it like other Sony models which refuse to play files under 32 kbps?

I found this.

"Battery life is rated 1150 songs/76h 40m (48kbps), 885 songs/59h (64kbps), 440 songs/29h 20m (128kbps), 220 songs/14h 40m (256kbps), 175 songs/11h 40m (320kbps) for music"

I know battery life on mp3 players tends to vary a bit with the bitrate used, however it is hard to believe that battery life could be over 76 hours at 48 kbps, and under 12 hours at 320 kbps. This seems crazy.
