I finished up the second PCB — added the switches, the battery charging, the speaker, and even added a LIR2032 battery on the back. I will be developing my sprite library now.

Of course the first (well, second, but first physical) prototype has a number of problems. I will write them down, so that I can fix them when I make the next version:

"Mounting holes under the display make no sense" - I was wondering about that myself :D Do you have any expectations on battery time? I need to measure that myself at one point.

  Are you sure? yes | no

Not really, I suspect the main use of the battery will be the backlight, which is about 40mA, and the battery is 40mAh... The piezo might be taking a lot too.
