I knew that one would come up sooner or later . . . I'm actually surprised it took this long (8 hours).
Given that the last player, the Clip+ supports gapless playback, one can probably assume the Fuze+ does too.

One website I saw earlier today with info on the Fuze+ said that it does have gapless playback, which was one of the few annoyances I had with my Fuze. I think this will be a solid upgrade. I'm not nearly as concerned about the touch controls as everyone else is around here. Judging by the demo videos on the product page, it looks like a decently fluid UI with touch controls.

I saw those too, and thought the screen response was awful sluggish though. I would have thought it would have been a bit snappier.
I did like the alpha letter displayed iin the upper right corner when scrolling (accelerated) through long artist or song lists. Nice touch!

Yes, The Fuze+ support gapless playback
Yes, you can set your own pictures as the background. If no picture is set as the background it will use the album art to stitch together a background image.

If we add a 16Gb or 32Gb uSDHC card to the Fuze+ 16Gb version,
- Will it smoothly handle 10,000+ song titles?
- Will the uSDHC card integrate with onboard memory to form a single playback-library space, as does the current Fuze?
Thanks for any solid info.

"Why wasn't the battery life increased? If it's due to pricing, then I would have been willing to pay a little more for more hours."
Sandisk seems to be overly obsessed with player thickness. Perhaps having double the battery life might mean having a player around 20% thicker? I guess the additional cost for a battery with double the capacity wouldn't have been that much. I agree with you. Imo mid sized players such as the Fuze and Fuze+ should have 50+ hours of battery life, and smaller players such as the Clip+ should have 25+ hours of battery life.
